5 things you should know about becoming a volunteer tutor
1. No experience is necessary! We provide training, all the materials, and coaching so that you can be effective immediately.
2. This year, for the safety of our tutors, our two-hour tutoring clinics will not be held at school sites during school hours. Instead, tutors will be working remotely but in teams to provide their students remote tutoring via an online tutoring platform. We will hold online tutoring clinics, hosted by Children Rising staff, Monday thru Friday, during school hours. Both morning and afternoon clinic times are available.
3. You work with your students one-on-one. In a two-hour, online clinic, you tutor one student and then another student for 45 minutes each. We try to pair you with those students for the entire academic year.
4. We will require you to be screened as part of Volunteer Registration. Schools require all volunteers who interact with children to be screened for TB and criminal history.
5. We ask that you commit to coming every week until clinics close in the spring. It is important to show up for your student each week. The children really count on it and look forward to seeing you! That being said, we recognize that life happens and you may need to miss some weeks for vacation or sick days. Just let us know ahead of time.
