Tutoring for Community

Last Saturday I visited the Tutoring For Community (TFC) program at the Haas Center. TFC is a new tutoring program that was started last spring by the ASSU Executive for children of Stanford staff. Stanford students act as the tutors and tutor all subjects from kindergarten to high school. The format is one-on-one tutoring and works to not just provide academic help but to "developing relationships between tutors and students that foster positive attitudes toward education.” The program has sessions every Saturday 3PM to 4PM at the Haas Center. See the full flyer here for more information and a map to the Haas Center which is located at
562 Salvatierra Walk on the Stanford Campus.
