Who we are:
The Merry Tutor is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides free tutoring to K-12 students and offers high school students the opportunity to volunteer as tutors.
It is our mission to provide tutees with an approachable learning environment and to offer tutors a way to develop valuable leadership skills.
Our concept is simple -- students helping students -- yet it is so unique. We have created an easily replicated system that can be started up in any community. The tutees, the tutors, and the community all benefit from what we have to offer.
How we operate:
The Merry Tutor currently has three locations. To see specific hours for each see our hours page (here). We generally tutor out a community's local library or teen center, by the teen section.

The Merry Tutor is a drop-in free tutoring organization, so no appointments are necessary. Students can stop by any time during our hours for assistance. No hassles for parents/families with prescheduling. We operate on a first-come first-serve basis. Tutoring sessions are capped at 30 minutes if there is an overflow of tutees, so there is never more than a 15 minute wait time.
We ask that students bring the materials they would like to work on to The Merry Tutor, so we can more effectively target specific areas. Generally, these materials are homework assignments, in-class worksheets, and school textbooks. We recommend that students who would like to work on subject areas not covered in class ask their teachers for supplementary materials or check out our suggested resources page (here).
When tutees comes in for the first time, parents must come in to register them. During this quick registration process, we get contact information and let you know more about our policies (view them below).
