City Tutoring

DeSoto City Tutoring
The City of DeSoto is partnering with DeSoto ISD to offer core curriculum tutoring to district students and students who reside in the City of DeSoto at no cost to families.

The tutoring will occur two to three days per week after school at select campuses. Students will receive transportation and an afternoon snack while participating in tutoring sessions.

City Tutoring will serve approximately 1, 050 students in grades three through five in Math and Reading. Each student will receive more than 90 hours of tutoring during the academic year to address academic gaps.

City Tutoring will facilitate a soft start on October 4, 2021, launch full-scale tutoring on October 11, 2021, and continue through April 8, 2022.

Sessions will be facilitated in groups of no more than five students per tutor. 

Students will engage in two hours of tutoring per day in sessions that will occur two days per week.

Tutoring will take place as follows at the following locations and times:

The Meadows Elementary: 

  • 3rd and 4th Grade Scholars: Monday and Thursday: 3:45-5:45p 
  • 5th Grade Scholars: Tuesday and Thursday: 3:45-5:45p

Frank D. Moates Elementary: 

  • 3rd through 5th Grade Scholars: Monday and Thursday: 4:10-5:15p

Ruby Young Personalized STEAM Academy: 

  • 3rd through 5th Grade Scholars: Monday and Thursday: 4:20-5:20p 

Katherine Johnson Tech Magnet Academy: 

  • 3rd through 5th Grade Scholars: Tuesday and Thursday: 4-6p 


While the DeSoto ISD Eagles Nest Enrichment after school program will accept students as based on the first-come, first-served application process, the City Tutoring program will extend services to students via two avenues for inclusion:

  • District students will receive an invitation to attend tutoring based on academic assessment performance data. 
  • Non-District/City Resident Students will be asked to complete a form that will provide opportunities to demonstrate need.
