Help provide tutoring for a child struggling in school

whiz_kids_logoTutoring has the power to boost children’s academic scores, create strong readers and improve confidence. But our volunteers become so much more than tutors. They become mentors, friends and positive role models that change the lives of children beyond the classroom. You can help provide life-changing tutoring and mentoring for an vulnerable child for just $42 a month or one hour a week of your time.

Our Tutoring Impact

By the Numbers

We provide tutoring for 1,200 at-risk children at 67 locations in Greater Cincinnati. The average child in our program improves 3 reading curriculum levels each year.

The Story of One

NorvelinNorvelin often interprets for his parents. They are from Guatemala and speak little English. For Norvelin, the impact Whiz Kids is having on his life goes deeper than learning how to read better. Read Norvelin’s story.

Our Approach

Whiz Kids is a literacy-based, one-to-one tutoring and mentoring program that has been recognized as a “Best Practice Program” by the Ohio Governor’s office. We work closely with local churches and organizations as they embrace a neighborhood public elementary school, develop relationships with school administrators, and provide tutors for the children. Tutoring sessions typically occur for one hour each week during the school year. If you’d like to learn more about Whiz Kids, please contact Janean at jparsons@CityGospelMission.org.
