Formed in the spirit of giving, we hold these children's hands while teaching them dynamics personal growth, social justice, and intellectual pursuits.
CRISTY'S PRIDE TUTORING
We believe in the power of the individual student to succeed in their academic and career pursuits.
We value the creative spirit in everyone of them and support them through our Fine Arts Program.
We also help students get the extra support needed in High School Mathematics to improve their chances of acceptance into colleges and universities.
TRADITION & DIVERSITY
Cristy’s Pride has a goal of helping diverse students looking to progress in life from elementary school to college. We provide tutoring at no out of pocket cost for students in need. We hope to help all Students we serve to reach their educational goals. We have a Spanish and English presence on our website. We work with all groups of people and have opened Cristy's Pride Tutoring in the Country of Colombia as well.
We provide free tutoring services for all students. However, for students whose family makes over 100,000 dollars a year we recommend a 10 dollar per hour fee. This is a recommendation only. We have the goal of raising enough funds to reward some of our top scholars with partial scholarships to the University or College of their choice.
Frequently, students possess the natural ability to succeed in College but lack a particular subject area such as Mathematics to gain acceptance. Furthermore, many students lack the necessary resources to pay for tutoring due to a parent's income. College admission has become extremely competitive for all students.
Cristy’s Pride Tutoring hopes to fill the gap for motivated students who need that extra help or mentorship necessary for college entrance. We work with students with a 3.0 or higher g.p.a. and help them reach their college goals.
Much like existing avid programs, Cristy’s Pride recognizes the necessity of college for future success and empowers that success through our mentorship program. We understand the importance of Mathematics for higher level learning, especially in the higher paid professions such as Engineering, Medicine, Science, Law, Psychology and Education. We also recognize the value of Fine Arts for individuals and our society as a whole.
Unfortunately, Fine Arts Programs have been cut or dramatically reduced due to budget restraints throughout much of our school systems. Cristy's Pride hopes to help in this area. We believe in the value of a well-rounded education, as modeled by Cristy herself, who earned a double major from Hofstra University, Long Island, New York in both Mathematics and Graphic Arts.
Currently, we are offering tutoring services in honor of Cristy in two locations:
Vista, North San Diego County, California. This is a specific site based tutoring location at 1025 Service Place serving high school students in need of additional support.
Barranquilla, Colombia, South America. This program is currently providing tutoring services to 130 elementary school children in need of educational support in order to not fall behind a year in school.
We look forward to the success of both these programs but we also have plans of opening other programs in other cities and countries around the world where the need and the support exist.
If you have an interest in supporting this foundation to open a local branch in your City or Country, please contact us directly at email@example.com. We would be very happy to work with you to make this a reality.
