Kindergarten tutor Katie Felicelli works with a group of students at the Little School after-school tutoring program Wednesday afternoon in East Bonita Springs. The program has had to cut its tutoring time in half due to a shortage of tutors. At a high of around 130 during season, the number of volunteers has been reduced to around 14 due to new state regulations requiring expensive processing fees, fingerprinting and background checks.
