The mission of the TUTORS program is to help pre-kindergarten through fifth grade
students become more proficient and confident in their reading and math skills. Tutors
strive not only to make a difference in the children’s lives, but to acquire teaching
experience in city schools and opportunities for community service.
The TUTORS program currently partners with Govans Elementary School in Baltimore City.
Towson University tutors are assigned to classrooms in grades pre-K-5 and work with
children under the supervision of a teacher. Tutors work with the entire classroom,
in small groups, or with individual students.
Tutors are either volunteers or paid student employees of the university ($11 per
hour for tutoring and travel time). All tutors provide their own transportation or
utilize the MTA.
Location: Govans Elementary School, 5801 York Road, Baltimore, MD 21212.
