Free tutoring at Cleveland Public Library branches

Free tutoring at Cleveland Public Library branches

Cleveland Public Library is offering free tutoring sessions through out the city of Cleveland and at two of its library branches in Central. The Sterling library and Woodland library have tutoring and homework help available on a variety of school subjects Monday through Thursday. Individual or small group tutoring allows students to receive a level of attention that’s difficult to obtain in large classrooms. Tutoring also helps raise children’s self-esteem as the student begins to experience success.


Tutoring in reading for children in kindergarten through third grade is available from 4 – 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday at the Woodland branch of the Cleveland Public Library. Reading tutoring and support for K – 3 students is offered at the library in partnership with Braxton Education and Technology Consulting. The Woodland branch is located at 5806 Woodland Ave, Cleveland, Ohio.

Students who don’t read at grade level by third grade often have a difficult time catching up as they progress through school. If your child is having difficulty reading or could use a more support, now is the time to start for K-3 students and take advantage of free tutoring opportunities available in Central.

All subjects

Both the Sterling library branch and Woodland library have one-on-one or group tutoring and homework help available for kindergarten through 8th grade in math, science, history and language arts. These support sessions are available from 3 – 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday and are offered in partnership with Cleveland State University’s America Reads tutoring services. The Sterling library branch is located at 2200 E30th Street, Cleveland, Ohio.
