Sitting in a coffee shop, 23-year-old Emily chats easily about the benefits of helping students with their schoolwork. When the conversation turns to the rich connections she’s made with kids as a tutor, her face lights up the entire room.
“It’s about academic success, of course,” said Emily. “But it’s really about getting to know these kids and listening to what they’re going through.”
Emily is part of a unique collaboration between Queens University’s Concurrent Education program and FASCLFA, called the START tutoring program.
