Review for Youth Tennis Advantage, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started as a volunteer tutor at BearTrax in Berkeley in the Spring of 2009. I've been coming back ever since because I believe Beartrax is a great after school program. Most days, each kid is able to get one-on-one tutoring from student volunteers, so each child gets the proper attention they need when they have difficulty with their homework. Not only are the kids tutored on homework and taught tennis by a professional instructor, but they also participate in a curriculum that teaches life skills such learning how to introduce yourself. BearTrax has the whole package!
