What is tutoring like?
Experienced tutors provide small group tutoring to students in a classroom setting. We highly encourage students to attend two to four days a week in order to help them develop their study skills and improve their grades.
My student is not low-income or first generation. Can s/he still participate in JCYC ETS services?
Although we welcome students who attend a JCYC ETS school to participate in our services, the program prioritizes students who are from low-income families and the first of their family to enroll in college.
