In 1990, the Church of the Covenant formed a partnership with its neighbor, John Hay High School, in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. Volunteers began tutoring students at the school and at the church under the direction of the chair of John Hay's English Department. Since that time, The Saturday Tutoring Program has developed and grown. Over the years, hundreds of students have received free tutoring from our volunteers.
The Program Today
Currently, The Saturday Tutoring Program provides free tutoring services for students in grades 1-12 from twenty-eight school districts throughout Greater Cleveland. The program occurs in an environment of mutual learning and respect to help students achieve their academic goals.
Our volunteer tutors come from universities, church congregations, service organizations, and the community at-large. Tutors and students cover a variety of subjects including math, reading, and science. Tutors also help students prepare for Ohio tests and college entrance exams.
