We provide one on one tutoring for children struggling with math and reading in grades 1-6, with a pilot program for grades 7-8. We are envisioning a hybrid model of program delivery but are opening fully on-line this fall, with a strong emphasis upon flexibility and continuity. On-line sessions will be monitored for safety/transparency; tutors will assist students with homework or engage in an on-line supplementary curriculum in lieu of homework. Pre-COVID: All the materials are provided in each child's individualized work binder. Typically, tutors sit with students in a study carrel, either supporting homework or explaining, clarifying and helping the student grasp the ideas and skills in homework or binder. When onsite, we are relocating program in our building to provide for social distancing and cross-ventilation as well as observing CDC recommended protocols. A tutor can select work on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday -- offering flexibility for 1-3 hours/week of commitment. Tutors undergo a background check and receive an orientation before beginning.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Bound Together
167 W Pike Street, Pontiac, MI 48341, US
Bound Together’s mission is to nurture self -worth and academic growth for Pontiac elementary school students performing below grade level.
For 25 years, Bound Together has welcomed, nurtured and encouraged all who are part of its fabric, providing tutoring and nutrition services at no cost to families. We are entrusted with children who are actively working toward improving their academic skills, and who also form strong bonds with each other and the adults who support them during our time together. Bound Together is in session (after school) every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday throughout the school year.After every session the children enjoy a hot meal. The success of the program is a direct result of caring volunteers who give of themselves as an investment in the life of a child.
