|Anchorpoint Summer Tutoring Program||Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry’s tutoring program offers academic assistance to students in grades K-12th who are currently participating in our counseling program. Volunteer tutors are carefully matched with a student according to the child’s needs and the tutor’s grade preference and subject expertise.
Many of the students we counsel struggle with learning disabilities, attention deficits, and behavioral difficulties that impede their academic performance. These problems compound their mental health issues and decrease their feelings of self-worth.||Allegheny||Summer Programs||Summer Programs|
