Spanish-speaking Volunteers needed for adult Spanish HiSET (GED) Class
30 people are interested
Become part of a vibrant learning community and help a local adult get the education they need to pursue college or a living wage job.Volunteers join a class for adults seeking get their High School Equivalency (HiSET, formerly GED). They assist in the classroom by working one-to-one, in small groups, or float among the class helping students (typically 12 or fewer) as needed.
We have a few classes conducted in Spanish, and need tutors who are fluent Spanish speakers to assist. (Sorry, fellow Spanish-learners, this is not the place to learn/practice. Effective volunteers are comfortable explaining academic content in Spanish)
Volunteers provide valuable individual attention, and a second source of help and support to students, and allow a teacher to more effectively meet the needs of a diverse class.
Classes meet weekday mornings or afternoons in Holyoke.
No experience as a teacher/tutor required - just a willingness to learn, and the ability to relate and communicate well with people. We will provide training to help you succeed.
6 month minimum commitment
