Check out MentorBuddies, a tutoring business which enables parents of young children (typically ages 5-13) to browse, contact and book lessons with Newton teens in academics, sports, music, coding, and more! The website has over 100 highly qualified mentors in 36 skill areas for parents to choose from, primarily from Newton North and Newton South.
At $25.00/hour, Newton parents can have their children mentored by varsity and state-ranked athletes, talented musicians, and honors/AP students. Kids who use MentorBuddies benefit from having an older successful teenage “buddy” as a role model.
MentorBuddies was started last year by a Newton North student to connect local talented teens with younger students in the Newton public school system for fun, educational, and affordable at-home lessons. Since then hundreds lessons have been provided.
