Title:Ralph Ellison Tutors Description:Have a free hour each week? Help a child succeed in school! We ask that tutors give one hour each week to help a local child complete and better understand their homework. Being an effective tutor requires a little knowledge and lot of patience. Our tutors choose a convenient time to meet up with local kids during regular library hours. Most of the kids needing a little extra help are elementary and jr. high school aged.
