Tutoring Matters

2019/05 Mayor Sam Liccardo to Announce New SJ Learns @ Cesar Chavez Elementary School

The Program

The Tutoring Matters expansion grant was created to provide San José students in grades 4-12 with access to high-quality tutoring services. Through the City of San José the program is funded with a one-time $2 million allocation from American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds. Grants were made available in Fall 2022 to qualified agencies and organizations that demonstrate the capacity to engage with schools, families, partners, and students to provide 1:1 or small group tutoring and academic recovery support.
