Five years ago, we began a very successful tutor/mentor program at MPMS. We are planning to continue the program this year beginning in late September/early October. We are seeking Math and Reading tutors/mentors who are willing to give at least one hour a week of their time during the school day. In order to create stability for the classroom teachers and students it is important that the tutor/mentor relationship be sustained for a period of time. We are seeking a year-long commitment. It will be possible to share your commitment with another tutor/mentor.
