LEARN UNITED Tutoring
Free tutoring is available for children in grades K – 12 in math, literacy, or science. This program offers free tutoring services to all children in the community who need tutoring in a particular subject, or general assistance with schoolwork. Volunteers for this program work with students who need one-on-one help on a particular topic for a short period of time – or for the entire school year. With education being one of United Way’s main areas of focus, Learn United Tutoring serves to fulfill the mission of supporting and promoting education.
This program was originally developed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic to address the shortcomings of remote learning. The response, however, was overwhelming. It was clear there was a demand, and a need, for free-of-charge tutoring services in the community that was exacerbated but not caused by the pandemic. Therefore, UWGN has continued to host the Learn United program in the post-remote learning era.
Tutoring is offered to school-aged children in any subject and at flexible times. Volunteers tutors are asked to have some experience with teaching, tutoring, or helping educate others in another way, but need professional certification is not required. Tutors generally work with one student at a time but may work with small groups if multiple students need help in the same subject.
Tutoring takes place primarily during after school hours and may be virtual or in-person depending on the needs of the student. In-person tutoring locations include (but are not limited to) the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Nashua, the YMCA of Greater Nashua, Nashua PAL, Girls Inc, the Nashua Public Library, the Salvation Army of Nashua, the 21st Century Extended Day Program, and United Way of Greater Nashua. You can find an interview with a United Way Tutoring Volunteer HERE.
All tutoring sessions are monitored by a second adult and all tutors are expected to pass a background check annually.
