School Year Tutoring:
UC is proud to partner with Columbus Tutoring Initiative and our local elementary schools to provide tutoring services for young readers. Grange Insurance has joined us to recruit from their employees for tutors at Fairwood Alternative Elementary. We are currently recruiting tutors for our work at Ohio Avenue Elementary.
Tutoring is a simple 1-hour per week commitment that takes place at the school around lunch time. We meet from October through April. You’ll use provided materials to work on reading, phonics, comprehension, and writing. This year, due to COVID, masks will be required, the school will do temperature checks, and we will maintain a minimum of 3 feet of space between people, but we look forward to being back in school, making a difference!

- Undergo a background check through CTI.
