About

The LBC Youth Department is seeking your volunteerism with tutoring services in the LBC Community for students of all ages. Tutoring services (such as Math, Reading, Science, and etcetera) are needed for at least once a week for approximately 1.5 to 3 hours one evening out of the week (planned to be on Mondays).


To referenced the United Way, there are five reasons why someone would want to volunteer as a tutor. But first, a basic definition of tutoring. Volunteer tutoring involves a combination of instruction and assisting with assignments, either one-on-one or in small groups of students.


And why would someone want to be a volunteer tutor?


  1. Tutoring works. One-on-one tutoring, in concert with the teacher’s curriculum, over time makes a measurable difference for students.
  2. You get more than you give. Volunteer tutoring is rewarding. You have the chance to make a real difference in the life of a child and ultimately, the greater community. Volunteer tutoring is easy and fun, and you get to experience your student’s positive responses and growth.
  3. You’re the expert. Volunteers get to share what they know, not only about the subject matter, but how success in school has made a difference in their lives.
  4. It’s flexible and predictable. Most tutoring programs will ask for an ongoing commitment. You can shop around, however, to find an opportunity that works with your schedule. More and more employers are finding ways for employees to commit to tutoring opportunities during the work day.
  5. All eyes are on you. Every child loves attention, and tutoring allows you to provide it. The attention can bolster the student’s sense of self-worth and self-confidence. And, students who form good relationships with tutors may feel more positively about relationships with teachers and parents.


If you're interested in helping children get more out of their education and have a solid foundation for future learning, become a volunteer tutor! Please contact Ms. Telia Mahomes at (501) 565-2092 for help in finding the right volunteer opportunity for you.
