ONE TO ONE TUTORING
1 to 1 Tutoring is a valuable and growing ministry that partners local churches with schools to provide students with access to a resource that is greatly needed, but often cost prohibitive.
Each Tuesday afternoon, volunteers from GCR will meet in the Lee High School Library to help students with their schoolwork.  We are in need of tutors in ALL subjects! You do not have to be an expert…the only requirement is basic knowledge of a subject, and a willingness to help students study or complete assignments. We are also in need of volunteers to provide food each week. This is a great opportunity to get to know some amazing young people and show our support for the teachers and counselors who invest so much in the lives of our local youth. To help in any capacity, please sign up at: http://gcrchurch.com/one-to-one-tutoring
