Adult Literacy Tutors

Commences on January 4th and expires on December 31st

Assist either an adult English speaker who has elementary-level reading skills or a non-English speaker who wants to learn English. Tutors are asked to commit to a full year of tutoring including summer if at all possible, but they can continue as long as they wish. Tutors must attend training and orientation before being matched with an adult student. Tutoring is for about an hour and a half to two hours at one of the public libraries convenient to you. With preparation time, the total weekly commitment is about 2-3 hours. Tutoring can be during the day, evening, or weekend. You only need to have the available time weekly, an interest and ability to help someone one-to-one, and a good understanding of English spelling and pronunciation. No teaching experience is necessary. There is much support for tutors from the tutoring materials and the other literacy volunteers and director. This would be great for students who want to directly helping another person over a period of time.

Math Helpers

Commences on November 13th and expires on May 31st

I am the Math Coach at Palm Bay Magnet High. Our school had the second lowest scores on the Algebra 1 EOC (End of Course) exam last year. This year, I was able to raise funds for our math students to use an online tutorial computer program during the day inside our computer labs. However many of these students need one on one help that one teacher alone is unable to provide. Subjects in Algebra 1 include: solving equations, graphing lines using y=mx+b, working with exponents, and factoring. And if you don't know how to do something, I can show you! Please contact me via email if you would like to help. The math teachers and I would greatly appreciate it!
