How much does the tutoring cost?

Village is free of cost.

How long are the tutoring sessions?

Approximately 2 hours each week for 10 weeks and two weeks in the summer.


Can I just drop my child off at 5:30 and pick him/her up at 7:30?

No, we believe parents/guardians are essential to the success of the Village. As such, we ask parents/guardians to attend the tutoring session along with their children.

Where does tutoring take place?

Tutoring takes place on site at all 12 of our partner Title I elementary schools.

Who are the tutors and their supervisors?

Tutors are Elon University Students volunteers. They are supervised by ABSS classroom teachers, Village Liaisons and Elon faculty and staff members.

What if the family does not speak English?

No problem, many volunteers and supervisors are multi-lingual.
