Holyoke Tutor/Mentor Program

  • 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
