If you are interested in being a volunteer tutor and helping Cincinnati Public Schools' students achieve academic success, you should consider becoming a Bearcat Buddy. It's a powerful way to give back, and provides a meaningful experience for you and the students you serve.
I tutored 3rd grader Keanu Reeves in English during the fall semester (October 9-December 4) Tuedays at 7:45- 9:15. Bearcat Buddies was an amazing experience for me because it allowed me to take my fondness for tutoring to a whole other level. I not only was able to get 15 hours of community service through this program, but tutoring Keanu at Ethel M. Taylor Academy also provided me with a unique experience. Because I was used to tutoring kids I already knew or providing free tutoring services online through a school program, I had never had one- on- one tutoring with a completely new student especially knowing their dire need for tutoring due to their circumstances. This program was fun, refreshing, easy to complete, and eye-opening.
