SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS

Funding for the program comes from a range of supporters, including Brown Memorial. Eighty percent is raised through generous donations from individuals and foundations committed to advancing literacy and helping the children of Baltimore City succeed.

Consider volunteering to tutor. Tutors commit roughly 90 minutes a week during the public school year. Come visit us to experience the joy and magic that occurs daily.

Super Hero Students in Action- Students Self Reflect

 

“What are some ways you can show courage? What are some ways you can show someone your gratitude? Imagine you are feeling sad. What are two things you could do to cheer yourself up?”

Self reflection is one area where the Brown Memorial Tutoring students are showing off their Super Hero abilities. We are starting each session this year with a question of the week, asking students and their tutors to discuss and journal about thought-provoking questions. We are seeing charitable, kind and compassionate writings in this work which simultaneously reinforces our students’ writing, spelling and editing skills.

For example, one student wrote, “One way I can show gratitude is by helping people when they really need it. Another way I can show gratitude is by giving encouragement.”

In response to the question, “Imagine you are feeling sad. What are two things you could do to cheer yourself up?” another student wrote, “When I am sad I take a deep breath and play with my dog.”
