School-Year Program

Tutor this Spring!

Tutor in our after-school program, supporting the success of our motivated fifth – eighth graders from underserved communities across San Francisco. We accept applications from adults, college students, high school students, and eighth graders at Breakthrough and SF Day.

The commitment is one afternoon per week, Mon, Tue, or Wed, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm (or 4:30 – 5:30 pm for eighth grade tutors). Our spring 2024 program will run from the week of Feb 5 through the week of Apr 15, 2024. Tutors must commit for the entire semester, including a training session the evening of Jan 31 and a mid-semester check-in and take-home assignment.

Volunteers in college or older have the option of serving as a virtual tutor for one of our high school students (on your own time, over Zoom), instead of tutoring in our after-school program. This requires a level of comfort with the higher-level content that  high school students engage with.

The tutor application will reopen in Dec 2023 for spring 2024 tutor positions. To be notified when the application launches, please complete the form above. Questions can be directed to Sara Marcopulos, Breakthrough’s Director of Curriculum and Instruction.
