Academic Success Facilitator

I am assisting students in their recovery of class credit, through an online program called APEX. Due to the several classes that are going on simultaneously, it is difficult for me to give the needed one on one attention. The responsibilities of the tutors would be to pull the student(s) aside for 30-40 minutes in order to help them study the concepts before their subsequent quizzes. The goal is that each scholar completes at least one quiz each school day.

+  Teacher's Aide

Sign-Up

The volunteers, ideally, would be college or graduate students that are bilingual (English/Spanish) and have an interest in working with students in the future.

The volunteers would work at Aurora Central High School (11700 E. 11th Ave. Aurora, CO 80010) with one teacher. The time slots are 8:30-9:30 am and 1:20-2:20 pm, with two volunteers per class. The role of the volunteer would be to help the Spanish speaking students with their classroom assignments and help them understand the instruction given by the teacher. The students are wonderful and eager to learn. These volunteers could potentially make a significant difference in the students’ advancement in learning the English language. After volunteering in this classroom myself, I strongly believe that this would also be an enriching experience for the volunteers, particularly if they have an interest in working with students in the future!
