The Story

The phrase "No Child Left Behind" is so powerful; with your help we can make it more than an empty phrase, we can make it a reality. True Potential Tutoring, is a program to reach the students in Long Beach High School, that have been left behind. Many of these students do not have the emotional and financial support to help them reach their potential. Without these resources becoming available, they will graduate but with little learned and few future options. I know the many steps I have to take to give my own children the chance for success in high school and beyond. I cannot imagine how a child can be expected to succeed, without someone motivating them and advocating on their behalf. The schools are overwhelmed with so many students and changing standards. Teachers can only spend so much time on a student they feel is underperforming. The reality is, the student falls so far behind it becomes imossible to catch up without help. The further behind a student fall's the path to trouble looks like the only option. Please, let us work together to help those students who want more, who are willing to work towards a different future, one filled with more possibilities. Although they did not have the same opportunities to succeed, they have the same potential; let's help them reach that potential.
100% of raised funds will pay for one-on-one tutoring sessions. Tutoring sessions will be tailored to each students individual needs.
No child should be left behind. This is True Potential Tutoring's second year, last year with your help we were able to offer consistent weekly tutoring to 12 students. We are ready to double that number, please help us give all children equal opportunity, their future is our future.

The school year is flying by, this week is filled with quarterly exams and then it's the start of the 4th and final quarter of the 2016-2017 school year.  We have been very busy at True Potential Tutoring, this past quarter we were lucky enough to have the help of 4 new tutors. We're currently tutoring 24 hours per week, and expect additional students 4th quarter as everyone starts to prepare for finals and NYS Regents. In order to continue with our current tutoring schedule as well as take on additional hours we are hosting an April fundraiser.  100% of the money raised will go directly to pay for our one-on-one tutoring sessions.  Thanks to everyones support we have been able to make a real difference for the students we tutor, we witness that with improvements in grades students start to develop more confidence, a more positive attitude towards school and a sense of pride.
See our flyer for all the fundraising details, I hope you are able to join us for an amazing workout - its a great way to help the local community while doing something good for yourself.  Liz Nachman from Rebuild the Beach will donate her time and talents to teach the spin class, and Ocean Ride Cycling is donating the studio time. If you are unable to make the class please think about making a donation.

I just got the best text ever - - one of the students we tutor just sent me a text letting me know he got a 90 on his geometry test - this is a first - he is a student that has always faced struggles in school, after so many struggles it is not always easy to believe you can do it and that has a big effect on your effort.  Now he knows with the continued tutoring and his continued effort success will be his, not only in geometry but in his other classes as well.  I am so proud of him and more importantly he is so proud of himself!!  The second part of this news is that his student tutor is someone who started with TPT last year as a student in need of tutoring!!  
Bingo Night was this past Saturday Night - I want to thank everyone who came out to show us some love - all of the funds raised will be used to cover the costs of one-on-one tutoring.  Keep an eye out for our next event - If you were not able to make it but would like to show some love please feel free to donate here, or be in touch!!   Happy Holidays
