Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida, Inc.'s Tutoring and College Preparatory Program is an expansion of services that we offer under our Guests/Classes/Trips Program. These One on One and Group Workshop sessions include a year- long K-12th personalized tutoring and college preparatory program that closes the achievement gap for underserved and minority homeschool communities. Our program objectives are to increase academic, college and career access and readiness, improve self-confidence, and increase test scores among students. This program embraces students from our homeschooling community who are either minority, struggling academically, or have a learning disability (ADHD or on the Autism Spectrum) and don’t have the monetary means to get the help that they so desperately need.
This program is established to help give our students the ability to compete amongst their peers, make progress in their studies, and for those receiving coaching, that they are college and career ready. This program is developed in partnership with Education Revolution and Upchieve.
Classes begin on September 7, 2020 and end on May 3, 2021.
Cost-Share for a Family of One Participating child is $50.
Cost-Share for a Family of Two or more Participating children is $75.

Example- If your child has an essay to write and needs someone to look over it and give pointers before they turn it in, great way to use this service. There is no video or audio for the safety of our students. It will be text/chat. Look at the pic below to see how the screen looks once you sign in and establish your account.
