Mentor Tutor Connection (MTC) is a community-based and supported non-profit organization that provides tutors at elementary and middle school grade levels and mentors to the three high schools in the Mountain View Los Altos High School District (CA).
For elementary and middle school children, we offer tutoring during the school day under the supervision of the classroom teacher and help with homework in after school programs. Most of the tutoring is in basic skills but subjects can range from reading skills, English, math, and science. We also may assist English language learners or students in special programs such as public speaking or science labs.
All mentor volunteers are placed at the high school level. Mentors are carefully screened and interviewed by one of our experienced mentor-coordinators for the purpose of creating a good match with a student who has been referred to the program. Mentor training is provided and ongoing support is available through the coordinators. The role of the mentor is to spend time with the student, be a good listener, and provide a positive influence in the student’s life.
