[SP] For Love of Children seeking volunteer reading tutors for elementary school students

For Love of Children (@FLOC_DC) is excited to partner with the Southeast Tennis and Learning Center to offer reading tutoring to elementary school students in Congress Heights this school year. 
But we need YOUR help!

·      One-on-one tutoring allows for individual attention and a specific approach for each child
·      Students can see and celebrate their progress as you help them master new concepts
·      On average, students improve 1 full grade level after just 28 hours of tutoring
·      No experience is necessary! You just need a commitment to supporting a child’s education.  FLOC will provide training, a curriculum, and ongoing support from professional staff.
·      Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, be native English speakers, and be able to commit to 2.5 hours every Saturday morning through the end of the school year

Every volunteer who steps up means
one more student we can enroll in tutoring!
