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.

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things one could ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help positively shape a child’s future by empowering them to be an achiever. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.
Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra cheese. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy them even more with your Little—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact.

I am looking for volunteers who may be interested in earning community service hours by helping me tutor students throughout the week, one or two days a week, during school hours or any portion thereof. I teach Math for College Readiness and Geometry. Math for College Readiness is a basic algebra class for students who struggle with math; senior level tudents who did terribly on their ACT last year. The students are a great group to work with, but so many have questions. It's difficult for me to individually help 25 students so any help would be appreciated. I take them to the computer lab once or twice a week where they work on math problems on a computer while I circulate helping them.
