About the Center

Mission Statement

The Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project seeks to provide a warm, supportive environment for elementary school children in need of academic tutoring. This environment is established through:

  • the opportunity to work one-on-one with a trained, caring tutor;
  • individualized instruction based on current assessments;
  • a casual, child-centered, yet structured atmosphere;
  • opportunities for tutors to get to know their children and incorporate their interests into the tutoring lessons; and
  • a variety of educational materials and resources that appeal to children.

In addition to helping children gain vital skills and work towards grade level, this unique setting is also designed to cultivate self-esteem and confidence. The one-on-one nature of the program and the resulting undivided attention that the children receive ensure that children come away with a greater sense of their own abilities, a renewed interest in learning and doing well in school, and the knowledge that they are capable and talented and can succeed.
