Hello all,

This is my first thought on starting a free tutoring for disadvantaged students, possibly in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford area, absolutely no charge for students.

"Some" things we would initially need:
-You! Whether you are a banker, teacher, engineer, or a cook -- if you did well in a certain class in school, and you think you could teach it, bring it! Teachers would be great to help mentor the other tutors with tips and tricks on teaching.
-Commitment! I don't see it as this taking a huge commitment, but maybe an hour or two after work. Enough to help kids with their homework, and you get to relieve all that stress! But it'd be great if we could keep it relatively consistent, as these kids will need a lot of help.
-Kids to have FUN! I think it's one of the best ways to keep the students engaged, so I imagine maybe math games, word games, and whatever else will help the kids remain interested and feel rewarded for learning!

Once I know we have enough volunteers, we can start thinking about location, resources, and sketching up a better plan. Give me your thoughts and ideas on this.

before you can get volunteers you are going to have to have something in place--
they are going to want to know where they will be doing tutoring--
what type of resouces you will supply for them to use

you are also going to have to convince students to come to your sessions--free or not--
most of them are reluctant to come to the free tutorials that the school/teachers offer before/after school...

Well, first I really want to see if people would be interested before I even go forward with the idea. Also, when coming up with these ideas, the more heads, the better. I'm not signing people up just yet, but kinda hoping to get a group and then start thinking about organizing something (more of a bottom-up approach right now).

I do understand your point though, I should definitely have something more definitive before I start asking people for participation.
