IMPORTANT INFORMATION July 3, 2013 IMPORTANT INFORMATION
No placements will be made in the Circle of Friends program for Fall Semester 2013.
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.
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."
