After-school Tutoring

Setting Students up for Success in Grades K-2

The After-school Tutoring & Summer Enrichment Program is an imperative intervention for the K-2 students who score below grade-level on County assessments. This program provides the extra attention and support these students need to reach the academic milestones required for success in school. Students in this program consistently show demonstrable gains during the school year and in the summer. A true strength of our program is the high school students who are tutors and role models for the young students, giving them someone they identify with to emulate.

How After-school Tutoring Makes a Difference for Samantha

Samantha Maldonado, one of 740 students in Guadalupe Center’s After-school Tutoring program, says, “It’s cool. They (the tutors) help me with my homework and then we play learning games. I just like them to be around because that makes me comfortable. I want to thank them every day!”

A second grader at Highlands Elementary School, she is inspired to become a teacher when she grows up, and she proudly reports that she is already helping her teachers by translating for several Spanish-speaking students in her class.

“These families work, many of them in fields and other demanding jobs, so they are not home at 3:00,” says Jamie Scott, director, Naples Children & Education Foundation (NCEF) Out of School Time Initiative. “The After-school Tutoring Program gives students a safe place to go after school, a mentor and someone who is excited to see them at the end of the day.”
