Tutoring at-risk youth

We are looking for individuals that can either specialize in a specific subject-area (English, history, algebra, biology, social studies, Spanish, etc.) or can help with general homework across multiple fields. Anyone that can help with general reading, writing, studying, SAT prep, or note-taking skills would also be quite helpful for the students.

Many of the students will have taken good notes and are prepared to work on assignments. The tutor’s role is to help break down assignments, provide guidance for an outline, work through various steps of a math problem, or simply ask probing questions about the answers they derived. The foundation of this program (college admittance) is achieved through academic success, and keeping the scholars on track helps to serve a pivotal role.
