Tutors volunteer at least once a week in classes for adults seeking get their High School Equivalency (HiSET, formerly known as GED). Tutors assist in the classroom by working one-to-one, in small groups, or float among the class helping students as needed.
Tutoring provides valuable individual attention, a second source of support to students, and allows a teacher to more effectively meet the needs of a diverse class. Classes cover reading/writing, math, science, social studies and technology.
Classes meet weekday evenings at locations in Holyoke. (Weekday morning and afternoon classes also available!) We will match you with a class to fit both your schedule and interests.
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
