Ohio kids need you

On recent national tests, Ohio students scored at the lowest levels seen in decades due to impacts of the pandemic and beyond. Our kids are falling behind and while schools and educators are working hard to catch them up, they need help. 

That's where you and Tutor Ohio Kids come in to make a difference. If you have ever felt the call to work with kids and make a difference in their learning trajectory, now would be the time to do so. You can work with kids in person or virtually, before school, during the school day, after school, or even on weekends. 

No experience? No problem. We have online training for you to ensure you feel supported and confident.
