West Philadelphia Tutoring Project (WPTP) is a program of Civic House at the University of Pennsylvania. We have over 300 Penn student volunteers tutoring students ages 7-19 at local schools and on Penn's campus.

If you are interested in tutoring, please check out the Becoming a Tutor page. Contact us at wptp@dolphin.upenn.edu with any questions!

If you are a parent or guardian interested in having your child participate in our free on-campus tutoring program, please contact Civic House at 215-898-4831 or e-mail wptp@dolphin.upenn.edu and ask to be added to our contact list.

If you are interested in being tutored and are over the age of 19, our program unfortunately cannot accommodate your needs, but please check out these other resources within Philadelphia that are available to you.
