Seattle Goodwill has pivoted our Job Training & Education (JTE) programs and classes to a hybrid model due to COVID-19. We are offering both in-person (with adjustments and processes in place to follow Washington State and CDC guidelines) and virtual classes for our students in order to provide a safe learning environment and accessibility during the pandemic.
Tutors are vital to adult learners and benefit greatly from 1-1 support. Goodwill's JTE Department is looking for select volunteers who are patient, creative, and dedicated to p rovide one-on-one and/or small group academic support to students in a variety of subjects (ESOL, reading & writing, computers, math, retail & customer service and more) as a supplement to classroom instruction. Tutors will also assist students with assigned coursework to increase students’ mastery of course competencies. Tutoring sessions will occur outside of class time.
Provide guidance and academic support to individuals or small groups
Preparatory work before tutoring sessions: identifying current lessons from instructors and creating examples/activities (role playing, practice exercises, reading materials, etc.) based on lesson plan
Walk through classroom activities and homework in various subjects
Provide a wide array of examples, depending on the student’s learning style
Goodwill provides quality, effective employment training and basic education to individuals experiencing significant barriers to economic opportunity. Because jobs change lives.
Goodwill inspires hope and self-confidence, helping people from all backgrounds and walks of life to feel successful, valuable and dignified.
