Tutoring In Public Schools
Tutoring In Public Schools (T.I.P.S.) sends Brandeis students to volunteer in local Waltham Public Schools where they are placed in classrooms for one hour per week. At the elementary schools, students who need extra help and attention are referred to the “Homework T.I.P.S.” program, which runs at various times in the afternoon. Volunteers help students with their homework in small groups and engage in enrichment activities. Parents pick up their children at the school at the end of the program.
Population Served: Waltham Public Schools’ teachers and students
Community Partners: Northeast Elementary School, Plympton Elementary School, Stanley School, Waltham Family School and Whittemore Elementary School
Transportation: If the school is not in walking distance from Brandeis’ campus, transportation is provided for Brandeis volunteers by the Waltham Group van or Waltham Crystal Shuttle Service. Elementary school students participating in the Homework T.I.P.S. program are picked up by a guardian from their school.
