Male Teacher with Students



A focus of YEDA is to provide the youth with educational and inspirational opportunities for growth. One aspect of our comprehensive programming is our academic program consisting of adult and peer tutors working directly with enrolled students.  

Students receive one on one guidance from highly experienced mentors in a wide range of fields. Each tutor has undergone a complete background check and have committed to ensuring the safe, fun, educational environment that has become synonymous with YEDA. 

YEDA tutoring, in combination with our Athletics program, challenges students to think beyond the classroom. While the tutoring portion builds on the knowledge gained from traditional school, it also helps to close the gap from the learning loss that occurred during the pandemic. 

Our tutoring program includes a homework clinic, peer-to-peer guidance, targeted Common Core skill practice for acceleration or remediation, and social-emotional support. Enroll your child today!
