A new year with Law Firm Tutoring!

The 2010-2011 school year is in full swing! On Tuesday approximately 75 students boarded several school buses marking the beginning of Law Firm Tutoring. Law Firm Tutoring is a program designed for all 11th graders. The program connects students with community members at one of five local law firms: Morgan Lewis, Crowell & Moring, Williams & Connolly, Jenner & Block, and Vinson & Elkins. There students eat dinner and receive help in subjects ranging from Chemistry to Spanish to US History through one-on-one tutoring. Law Firm Tutoring is not only an opportunity for students to receive help with their school work during their most important year of high school but it’s also an opportunity to connect students with working professionals. The tutors, ranging from lawyers to paralegals to administrative professionals, serve as role models to the students and frequently develop personal relationships with students. Many 12th graders enjoyed Law Firm Tutoring so much last year that they signed-up to do it again this year! We are all looking forward to another exciting year with Law Firm Tutoring!
