July 17, 2023

Thinking about becoming a tutor? Please do! Heart Math Tutoring is excited to serve 50 students in the 2023/24 school year with the help of 60 volunteers giving just one hour per week!

To become a tutor, simply select your preferred tutoring time and location on the Winston-Salem sign-up form, and we’ll pair you with a student! Tutoring begins in early October. Looking for the sign up to startup process for another location? See our posts for Charlotte and Charleston!

We want you to know what to expect when you sign up to tutor with Heart! Below is the process from signup to startup.

1. Sign Up: Get started by selecting your tutoring time and location on our website. You’ll select your preferred school, tutoring day of the week, and time. We will send you a copy of the form once it’s submitted.

2. Receive a Welcome Email: The week you sign up to tutor, we’ll send you an email welcoming you to the program and giving you more information to prepare you for tutoring!

3. Receive a Startup Logistics Email: In September, you will receive an email confirming your school assignment, asking you to complete your WS/FCS Volunteer background check (if you have not done so yet), and providing additional information about tutor training.

4. Volunteer Background check: Before you begin tutoring you will need to complete your WS/FCS Volunteer background check, an online form that takes 2 minutes to fill out if you have your driver’s license and social security number handy. You must complete your background check before you begin tutoring. You can complete that step here now or wait until you receive your startup logistics email. Be sure to select “Bolton Elementary” and “Heart Math Tutoring” in the School or Group 1 dropdown!

5. Tutor Training: Every Heart Math Tutoring volunteer is required to attend a two-part orientation. Part I is a virtual, asynchronous training you will complete at your own pace. Part two is an in-person training at your school site the week before tutoring begins. In these orientations you will learn about our approach to tutoring and get to experience our curriculum first-hand. More details will be provided in the start-up logistics e-mail.

6. Session Assignment Email: By the week of September 25th, you can expect an email from your Program Coordinator with more details on the day and time you’ll be tutoring. Our team will be working hard administering student pre-assessments and matching students’ schedules with tutor signups until that time.

7. Tutoring Begins: In-person tutors will begin working with students starting the week of October 9th. Congratulations, you’re officially a tutor with HMT!

If you have any questions during the sign up process, please reach out to us at and a member of our team will be in touch! 

See you soon!
