Our CCH Volunteers Are Big On Heart – we have been elated over the last few years to be able to partner with Heart Math Tutoring.
So what is Heart?
This Charlotte based organization is dedicated to assisting elementary students build a firm academic foundation and understanding of math. They recruit and train volunteers who serve as tutors for the students. Students study CMS-Approved and Common Core-Based curriculum. Volunteers devote one hour of their time each week to enrich these children’s lives and it soon becomes the highlight of their week!
We encourage you to consider volunteering. Learn about the opportunity

“I have had a wonderful experience as a Heart Math tutor. So rarely can you see concrete results from your volunteer efforts. With Heart, you see real progress and so do your kids. Like most Heart kids, both of my students exceeded their program goals for the school year. Heart gives you all the tools you need to walk through the door – even on your busiest day – and meet your student right where they need you. And, the smiles and hugs brighten your day every time!” Lisa Blanton
“I have been a HEART Math Tutor for over seven years, starting the very first year at Allenbrook Elementary and now at Winterfield. I have done many volunteer jobs in the schools but this is by far the most organized and effective program I have ever seen. They make it so easy for volunteers to show up weekly with a clear plan provided for working with your student. The results are amazing – most all students make high gains in math aptitude during the year. The best part is how excited the kids are to see you and how much their confidence grows as they become a better math student. HEART is a tremendous program!” Lisa Warren
“My experience at Billingsville volunteering in the Heart Math Program has been wonderful. The coordinators of Heart Math have a very detailed plan for the tutors to follow. They are on site if you have any questions. I particularly enjoyed the interaction with the students. It is also a way that I feel I can give back to our community in a positive way. I believe I take away as much from the program as I give. It is a blessing to be able to serve this community.” Susan Knee Smith
