Give students the tutoring help they need! Volunteer to be a Study Zone Tutor!
The Study Zone needs dedicated volunteers to tutor elementary through high school students at the library. Use your skills in math, science, English, social studies, study methods and more!
Study Zone tutors provide help in all subject areas up to the 6th grade level and also specialize in one or two subjects up to the college-prep level (you let us know what subjects you will tutor for the high school students). Each tutor works with 1-5 students in a group setting. Whenever possible the 2-hour sessions are scheduled with two or more tutors in order to provide reliable coverage.
A 2-hour weekly commitment or flexible substitute scheduling are available. Applications to be a Study Zone tutor are accepted throughout the year. Training and support provided. The program is closed during school holidays. Academic community service credit is available for students. Schedules vary at each library and new days/locations are being added; please contact the program coordinator for possible schedules at the libraries in your area. If your preferred library is currently full, you can tutor at a nearby location or be a substitute tutor until a spot opens up at your preferred location. The Study Zone program is offered as a free service of the King County Library System.
