Thank you for your interest in the Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project! Since its founding in 1958, the Tutorial Project has helped more than 5,000 elementary school children (grades 1-5) gain vital skills and work towards grade level academics, while also cultivating self-esteem and confidence. The Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project seeks to provide a warm, supportive environment for elementary school children in need of academic tutoring. This environment is established through:

  • the opportunity to work one-on-one with a trained, caring tutor
  • individualized instruction based on current assessments
  • a casual, child-centered, yet structured atmosphere
  • opportunities for tutors to get to know their children and incorporate their interests into the tutoring lessons
  • a variety of educational materials and resources that appeal to children

The one-on-one nature of the program and the resulting undivided attention that the children receive ensure that they come away with a greater sense of their own abilities, a renewed interest in learning and doing well in school, and the knowledge that they are capable and talented and can succeed.

I was extremely happy to get my daughter involved in the Tutorial Project because the one-on-one tutoring helped her academically. She also became a lot more confident with her math and was enjoying every step of the learning process because of her great tutor. Since the program is on a college campus, it shows the kids that they can excel towards something and be comfortable in a higher education learning environment. – Dia Lynch, Parent
