EMS Closes Out 20th Year with Record Success

Educational Main Street, an initiative in the Center for Learning and Professional Education, is closing out its 20th anniversary year in May, 2010 by surpassing previous years in the number of tutors trained, oriented, and placed at EMS' Greater Hartford partner schools this semester. Two hundred sixty-three (263) University of Hartford students worked with 300 children  individually or in small groups.   The tutoring took place during school and after school with children in pre-kindergarten through high school. The EMS Tutoring Program is a unique program where everyone teaches and everyone learns. Educational Main Street Tutor ProgramThe tutors' learning augments their course work as they teach the children in the assigned service-learning project. The children learn everything from forming letters to forming equations while they teach the university students lessons about life.

Managing the volume of student tutors are 15 dedicated student leaders know as Tutor Coordinators. They ensure that every student finds a placement and every child who needs one gets a tutor. Their dedication and leadership contribute to the success of the EMS Tutoring Program.

We are looking forward to the challenges and successes of our 21st year. Together we do make a difference
