Following are some of the gains available to volunteer tutors:
(a) They can receive valuable training that will improve their own skills as a student.
(b) They can acquire important social skills and work experience.
(c) They can enjoy the sense of fulfillment, pride, and honor of serving others and helping their local community.
(d) They can earn community service credit needed for high school graduation
(e) They can create a portfolio package of their work (including student successes, pictures of them tutoring, etc.) for use in their college application resume.
This is a huge win-win: the volunteer tutors win, the students receiving the tutoring win, and the community wins from the excellent results delivered at a low cost.
