We are now accepting applications for the 2019-20 school year. Our Wednesday and Thursday one on one slots are currently full for high school students, as we save slots for Stanford students each year. You can still be a small group tutor on Monday or Tuesday, or apply to be on the waitlist for Wednesday or Thursday, as spots open up throughout the year. New tutors must attend a mandatory orientation and training in the afternoon of Sept. 24 OR Sept. 25 at Palo Alto High School.

Our classes begin the week of Sept. 30.

Thank you for your interest in DreamCatchers; we will be in touch soon!
