In-person Tutor - King County Goodwill Job Training & Education Center

Save to Favorites


JTE Volunteer

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.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • 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
  • Other activities as needed
