Our Story

HOPE began in September of 1996 at Aldersgate United Methodist Church because the congregation wanted to help the children in the neighborhood. HOPE soon became a non-profit agency and a community-wide organization. Since then, we have served thousands of economically disadvantaged students in the Arlington area. 

We currently offer virtual and in-person tutoring in Arlington. We strive to help students improve their grades, their attitudes and their behavior. The services provided by HOPE Tutoring Center, Inc. are made possible in part through a Community Development Block Grant from the City of Arlington through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
