MPSH Summer Reading

Pinecrest Gardens Volunteer Opportunity for Students

Pinecrest Gardens welcomes students (minimum age 16) to volunteer to help cleanup and beautify the Gardens.

It is a great opportunity for a student to both connect with and enjoy the beautiful botanical gardens and to earn community service hours at Pinecrest Gardens. The time window to volunteer closes at 4 pm daily, Mon to Fri, so for many students the summer vacation months are most suitable. The times and number of hours weekly is quite flexible and may be adapted to the needs of the student.

The contact person at the Gardens is “Harvey” at 305-669-6990 (the main number for Pinecrest Gardens at which they may leave a message for Harvey).

There is a basic application process they must complete and get approved prior to starting to volunteer. The application is available at:

Once approved they are eligible to volunteer anywhere in the Village of Pinecrest.

Any interested student can also text or call me (786-312-0933/Dr. Landy) and I am most pleased to address their questions and facilitate their process.

Thank you so much for referring any students that might welcome this opportunity. Please call me if you have any questions.

FREE Tutoring through Miami-Dade Public Library System


The Miami-Dade Public Library System has two programs to help students academically, and best of all they are FREE. live, and interactive:



“Help your child have a successful school year with the Miami‑Dade Public Library System’s Homework Help & Tutoring Program. Free, 30‑minute one‑on‑one virtual tutoring sessions with certified teachers are available on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. ‑ 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. to all K‑12 students who reside in Miami‑Dade County. Tutoring is available in reading and math. To participate, please submit a tutoring appointment request for your child/ren each week. To maximize learning, a computer or laptop with Internet access and a working camera and microphone is required.”

Very soon, MDPL will be rolling out a program in which we circulate laptops to take home that will include internet access. It’s a CAREs Act grant. 


2- is normally a paid service through The Princeton Review, but is free for students with a library card (easy to get- see below). 

“Experts help you with homework, study for tests and write essays from noon to midnight daily.” The student can have typing or voice chat. They can request a specific tutor that they have worked with before or take a random tutor. The entire interaction is recorded and the student can put the transcript into a personal virtual locker. They can email it to their teacher or refer to it in the future. 

Other Notes: 

If a student doesn’t have a library card, they can get one almost instantly at


If they have any issues with logging on to any of the resources, can resolve problems from M-Th 9am-8pm, Fri & Sat 9am-6pm. 


Public libraries are open for students to study in, with safety measures in place. They also have computer access. For locations and hours:
