Giving every student a chance to thrive.
Turning Point Seattle’s programs help students reach their full academic potential.
Students work with the same tutor each day and receive over 100 hours of one-on-one tutoring. We partner with students, teachers, and parents in setting tutoring goals, and our tutors are as diverse as the students we serve.
STEM Programs give students the opportunity to strengthen skills critical to their future. Our summer Robotics Camp is led by an elementary technology teacher and students are matched with mentors to build and program robots. The culminating event is The Battle Of The Bots Celebration where students demonstrate their creativity, teamwork and problem-solving skills for their families.
A key characteristic of Turning Point is the fun community that develops through sharing dinners together. Students, parents and tutors share monthly dinners with culturally traditional dishes. During dinner, students showcase their personalities by putting on a fun (and funny) Variety Show – playing instruments, singing, dancing, showing their artwork, and serving as emcees. It’s a fun way for students to increase their leadership skills and for parents and tutors to cheer them on.
