Youth Tutoring Youth

Youth Tutoring Youth (YTY) is an elective course for high school students in grades 10-12. The major objectives of the course are to:

  1. provide high school students with an opportunity to give direct tutoring assistance to elementary/middle school classrooms under the guidance of a supervising and coordinating teacher.
  2. to increase students inter-personal and intra-personal skills.
  3. to challenge students in promoting life-long learning activities. Tutoring occurs either one-on-one, in small groups or in whole group settings. Tutors must enjoy working with younger youth, commit to attend on a daily basis and participate to the full extent during their assigned YTY hours. Tutors can be students at-risk, potential students at-risk or future educators.

YTY WORKS BECAUSE . . .

  • Individual attention can be given to elementary/middle school students who need additional help with academic, social and personal skills.
  • Younger students tend to look up to older students and thereby become more motivated to learn. The attention given an older student to younger students often helps them to build self-confidence, thereby increasing self-esteem. Success tends to teach students more than failure and tutors can help students succeed. Tutoring provides opportunities to learn, to teach, to grow, and to be of direct services to others.
