Posted on April 5, 2017The 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.

Posted on December 13, 2016I 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
