TutorSmart Tutoring

In the 2020-2021 school year, Partners in Education is partnering with TutorSmart Toledo and The Believe Academy along with Toledo Public Schools to provide afterschool tutoring for Kindergarten through grade 8 students living primarily in the 43609 zip code. All children attending Believe Academy Daycare Program and Escuela SMART are offered no cost tutoring in literacy and mathematics afterschool.

Tutoring takes place between 3:30-5:45 pm immediately following a snack provided by Connecting Kids to Meals. The tutoring programming is managed by Partners in Education. A site coordinator is provided to ensure staff and volunteers have the hardware, software and materials necessary for all programmatic elements and that data is collected and managed accurately to measure program success. We adhere strictly to the TutorSmart model. TutorSmart provides financial support for elements of the program.

Tutoring time consists of:

  1. Students working with the software programs Moby Max or iReady, which assesses students and supports reading and math instruction
  2. Student small group tutoring with licensed educators
  3. Student homework help provided by trained volunteers and staff

The tutoring and snack are free as are all elements of the Escuela SMART program. Contact Believe Academy at (419) 509-4481 for any fees associated with additional programming.

Believe Academy is a licensed childcare provider. Learn more at
