“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”

Clay P. Bedford

Thank you for your interest in tutoring a child through Lawyers for Learning! If you are interested in signing up to be matched with a student, please complete this form with all requested information. You should submit this form whether you are a new or returning tutor. If you would like a paper application please send us an e-mail.

After we receive your application, we will work with the school to match you with a student at one of your available time slots. Tutoring occurs once per week, at the same time each week. If we are able to match you with a student, we will notify you by email. Tutoring for the 2019-2020 school year begins on October 21st.

Please also note that if you are interested in tutoring but cannot commit to tutoring once weekly, you may split the tutoring duties with another colleague.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sarah Duval at sduval@elderjusticeny.org or lawyersforlearning@gmail.com
