Tutoring Opportunities in the St. Louis Area, Mid-Missouri & Northeast Missouri Regions, & Illinois

Help a child today, for tomorrow

You can help a child learn to love reading and learning!  Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring pairs volunteers with children in grades K-3 to work one-on-one each week as their tutors, mentors and friends.

You can choose from one of our participating school districts across Missouri and Illinois. You’ll work with the same child each week throughout the school year. Training is provided.

You can tutor one child or several, on a one-on-one basis each week throughout the school year. Other volunteer opportunities to support the tutoring program are available.

“I have a lot of respect for the challenges that today’s teachers deal with,” says Lou Cohen, Oasis tutor. “If the hour or so each week we spend with these kids can help them learn, it’s well worth our time.”
