What is Seeds of Success?

Seeds of Success is a volunteer program that arranges free tutoring for K-12 students in the community. Our tutors are current BYU students who take time away from their studies to offer this service. We are excited to tutor and hope to see you soon!

How do I get involved?


Register as a volunteer by filling out the Tutor Registration Form.

Let us know if you have any questions! We really do love to help and will do all we can to make tutoring a positive experience for you! Feel free to stop by and talk to us during our office hours. You are always more than welcome to contact us anytime at the phone numbers listed under 'Contact Us' or at seedsofsuccess@byu.edu.

What Parents Need to Know

To begin tutoring, we need you to do two things:

Fill out the Parent Release Form. You will need to print and sign it. We cannot accept electronic signatures. Feel free to bring this in by hand to our office or mail it to the address indicated. You may also scan it (take a picture of it) and email it back to us.

Complete this Student Registration Form. This contains the pertinent information that our tutors will receive.

Once we receive both forms, we will be able to find a tutor for your child.

What BYU Students Need to Know

For the first step, we would like you to come meet with one of our Program Directors or Executive Director to receive a quick orientation (10-15 min) on how to get started as well as answer any questions you might have. You can come in during one of our office hours (listed under 'Contact Us').

If those times don’t work for you, text Dallin Johnson (208) 916-3145 with 2-3 times that would possibly work for you, and we will work around that.

Volunteer Commitment:

In order to develop a relationship with your student and to build on consistency, please commit to at least one semester of tutoring.

Training:

You will need to fill out a background check request form after meeting with a program leader.

Because you will be working with children, you will also need to complete an online training in Child Protection through BYU’s Y-Train. Here is the link to complete that training module. It should only take 20 minutes or so to finish. Once you receive the certification, forward it to byusos@gmail.com that email.

Here are a few training links to best help you feel prepared to begin tutoring.

We have compiled a playlist of youtube training videos that detail effective tutoring techniques.

This document further details the guidelines for being a Seeds of Success Tutor.
