The Tutor Me Program (TMP) provides 1:1 academic tutoring/mentoring services, homework help, charter development, and STEM activities. TMP will run from September 04, 2023, through May 17, 2024 (33 weeks); Monday through Thursday, 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm. TMP serves at-risk and low-to-moderate income students, grades K-12 who live and attend school in the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area.
For the 2023-2024 school year, parents/guardians will have the option to choose to enroll their child(ren) into either virtual or in-person one-hour sessions, twice a week. TMP will be held in person at our Bridgeton location. Tutoring hourly sessions are $30 with a minimum of two sessions per week. Currently, we are in the process of becoming a provider (vendor) for families that receive childcare subsidy programming for after-school care programs. The Tutor Me Program will cover the following subjects: Math and Reading Comprehension.
This program has limited spaces due to COVID-19 standards. Parents/guardians will have the opportunity to make their child(ren)'s schedule. Please note that once your child(ren)'s schedule is made, you stick to it. All payments are due on Mondays for services rendered each week.
Applications will open on Monday, August 01, 2023, and will be accepted on a rolling basis. Applications will close on April 22, 2024, and reopen on Monday, August 05, 2024, for the 2024-2025 school year.

Step 2. Be sure to stay up-to-date with your child's process throughout the program by checking out the Parent Portal.
Step 3. Parents, please be mindful that their child needs to attend 95% of their tutoring/mentoring sessions. Students are not allowed to miss more than three scheduled appointments. Parents are required to communicate with our staff about their child's absences. If your child misses or is picked up late three times, then he/she will be removed from the program.
Step 4. Parents are required to turn in all their quarterly semester children's report cards via the Parent Portal. Students will be tested monthly to monitor progress and growth and a progress report will be sent home to show this data.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION
Smart Kids, Inc. engages with a lot of students, volunteers, and staff members of different ethnic groups. It is with great understanding that all participants recognize the importance of working side by side with people from different backgrounds. Our team deals with diversity everyday in the workplace, when providing our program services to students with the Greater St. Louis region. We make it a priority to discuss, implement, and practice the importance of policies and procedures of diversity training. We never want to make feel uncomfortable when participating in our organization.
Being that we all come from different backgrounds at Smart Kids, Inc., it is understood that we have great equity at all times. One of our first priorities is to treat everyone with respect and dignity. We also provide the same opportunities to enhance the student’s educational growth.
As an organization that deals with a lot of diverse students with different backgrounds, we want everyone to feel comfortable and for them to be themselves. It is already hard for students to seem perfect with social media telling them what is perfect and what it not. That is not our environment and we strive to make it a better experience when participating in our programs. We have all walks of life that we work hand in hand with and we aim for them to be their full selves. Being yourselves and being comfortable here at Smart Kids, Inc. makes it easier for you to be successful and really learn what you need better through our tutoring sessions.
