Tutoring Programs

We believe that learning happens best through relationship. The Elrod Center Tutoring programs connect Ouachita students with school students in our community for the purposes of academic help and mentorship. Ouachita students serve the same students and families throughout the course of the academic year. Meaningful relationships are forged and academic progress is made through these programs. Ouachita students can participate in Elrod Center Tutoring programs as volunteers or as work-study for those who are eligible.
