Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The Omaha Home for Boys School is seeking volunteers to provide math tutoring to our high school students.
Volunteers will follow a developed curriculum to help students build their math skills. Having some math teaching/tutoring experience would be helpful, however, the curriculum is already developed. Volunteers will follow the curriculum in the books to aid students.
Volunteers will be working with high school age males who are below average or in the lower extreme based on initial math assessments.
During the traditional school year (August through May), tutoring would be best during the afternoon, but morning hours could work as well. During summer school (June and July) tutoring would be in the morning.
The time commitment is approximately three hours per week. Volunteers could tutor one-on-one with a single student or may tutor several students as a group.
