Do you have an hour each week to give to a child? Circle of Friends (COF) partners FGCU student tutors with schools in our community. Any FGCU student can apply to be a COF tutor. You'll earn service learning hours, or if you are eligible for federal financial aid work-study funds, you can be a paid reading or mathematics tutor.
In the past several years, hundreds of FGCU students have been recruited, trained, and placed in local schools. Circle of Friends tutors really make a difference. If you make this minimal commitment, YOU can make a significant impact on a child.
January 8 2012: Please note that applications received now will be considered for FALL 2012 placements. No new placements are being made for the current semester, Spring 2012.
What tutors say:
"As a child I had a severe speech impediment. With the help of a tutor, I was able to catch up and excel. I want to return the favor because without the help of a tutor, I probably wouldn't be in college today."
"What a lot of children need is someone to simply hold out their hand and help them. "
"The more I work with children, the more I realize the impact I'm making in their lives."
"I have grown a passion for tutoring. I love the one-on-one time with students."
