No Cost Tutoring Opportunity for Students in Grades 6-12

Dear Parent/Guardian,


The Educational Service Center of the Western Reserve (ESCWR) is an integral part of the education system in our county, region and state. We serve the students and staff of the local, exempted village, city school districts, and joint vocational schools in our region. We are pleased to announce a recent addition to our dynamic programming with the launch of the ESCWR Student Resource Tutoring Center in 2021! The opening of the tutoring center was

made possible by the Whole Child Grant, and is a no cost service provided to students attending ANY school in Lake and Geauga Counties.


The ESCWR Student Resource Tutoring Center will be conveniently located in both Lake and Geauga Counties in order to adequately serve students in grades 6-12. Tutoring sessions will be face-to-face and one-on-one/small groups WITH COVID-19 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS IN PLACE.

If your child is interested in attending one of the time slots for tutoring you will be asked to call in or e-mail to reserve your child’s time slot for that week. There is minimal paperwork involved initially when registering your child, it can be accessed at (click on Family & Community Partnership Liaison tab) or, you can complete paperwork on-site when your child arrives for their first tutoring session.


The ESCWR is committed to serving students and addressing the needs of the community. It is our hope that by offering this face-to-face tutoring option that we will be able to appeal to students who could benefit from a non-virtual support. Should you have any questions please feel free to reach out to one of us for more information. Please see the attached Frequently Asked Questions page.
