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.
