Accelerate Northfield knows any youngster can be a learning superhero. That’s because its scores of volunteer tutors have helped students in Northfield public schools take flight toward lofty academic goals since 2011.
Accelerate Northfield is a collaboration among parents, community members and organizations dedicated to improving the academic performance of local students. Nearly all of the students assisted in their studies have attended School District 659’s three elementary schools.
Doing the heavy lifting in encouraging students to take steps toward superhero status – in other words, making strides in academic performance – has been community volunteers. These tutors, ranging in age from college students to seniors, work with students either on a one-on-one basis or in small groups in reading or math.
Accelerate Northfield continues to seek community members to join its team of tutors. Information about becoming a tutor appears on Accelerate Northfield’s website, www.acceleratenorthfield.org.
