Free PRIME TIME Tutoring SIGN-Up!
Free tutoring for K-12 students demonstrating financial need (students receiving free or reduced lunch or household income under $45K) within Spokane County. You are limited to one 45 minute session per student per week. Communities in Schools of Spokane County, Gonzaga University and Priority Spokane have partnered to provide this service to K-12 students most in need, Monday-Friday, from 3-6pm. Please sign up using the adjacent form for tutoring/educational support via Zoom at least 24 hours prior. Tutoring is provided by trained volunteers and from retired educators in the greater Spokane area.
PLEASE NOTE, IF CALENDAR DATES DO NOT APPEAR IT MEANS WE ARE AT CAPACITY. Please keep checking back.
Please complete the submission form in its entirety or you will not be scheduled. Students under 16 must obtain parental permission. You’ll receive a confirmation e-mail as well as a link to sign a document agreeing to the terms and conditions. This will need to be completed and returned prior to your scheduled time and in order to receive your Zoom link. We work to match the educational needs of students to volunteers with that expertise when possible. Please note we may not be able to find tutors for all subjects, and we may not be able to accommodate the needs of all students.
For safety and support, a supervisor listens in to every Zoom support session and is available should additional help be needed. If you need to cancel or change an appointment, please use the link in your confirmation e-mail. Due to the high demand, if you miss a scheduled session you may be ineligible for future sessions. If you need additional help, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . We’ll respond as we’re able.
