Neighborhood Tutoring Program

The Neighborhood Tutoring program promotes mastery of essential skills in students between 2nd - 12th grade to achieve grade-level competencies in Reading and Mathematics through focused personalized instruction via structured, orderly, and certified curriculum. Virtually, we will periodically assess students to ensure that material is mastered before moving on to the next lesson. When students are guided at their own pace by a dedicated tutor, they stay engaged through fun and interesting activities that are timely and meet or exceed the student’s learning objectives. The professionals of FLOC are passionate and driven toward the success of every student
