Who We Are
At Northstar Tutoring, we’re fighting to make sure that every student has the chance at a better future. By matching low income students with their own volunteer tutor/mentor we strive to provide the academic support and personal attention that these kids may not otherwise have in their lives. Partnering with families, educators and volunteers, Northstar has spent almost 30 years providing twice-weekly tutoring and regular mentoring activities to some of the most under-served students in the D.C. area.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY:
