Tutor a 2nd - 5th grade student in mathematics in the highly respected Newton Public Schools.
The program provides individual math support for Newton students to help them gain confidence and competence in mathematics. Using the math curriculum, tutors work with children before or after school, once a week, for 45 minutes, playing games that help reinforce skills, helping with daily assignments, and helping to fill in the gaps in mathematical knowledge. Students have the benefit of one-on-one attention from a caring adult who is there to listen to their mathematical reasoning, ask questions to guide their thinking, and help them experience success in mathematics.
No teaching experience is needed. Tutors select their preferred school, grade, day, and time. Training, learning materials, and ongoing support are provided. The program is available in Newton elementary schools throughout the school year.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
