Volunteer Tutors are paired with a child and meet weekly during the school year for a one-on-one after school tutoring session. We meet in Fellowship Hall at Meadowood Baptist Church each Thursday from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. during the school year. Volunteer tutors are greatly needed because if we do not have a tutor, that child in need cannot participate in the program.
Meadowood sends a bus to Crutcho School at 3:00 p.m. to pick up the children and bring them to the tutoring session. Each Whiz Kids session includes one hour of one-on-one tutoring, 10 minutes for snack time, and 20 minutes for Club Time (a group session that addresses character issues from a Biblical perspective and seeks to introduce kids to Jesus). After each session the children are driven home, which allows the tutor the opportunity to meet the child's family or caregiver. This is unique to the Whiz Kids program and gives tutors insight in understanding the child's home life and the obstacles they face.
