The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We provide one-on-one tutoring to school-age students and adult learners who struggle with reading. We use a scripted curriculum based on Orton-Gillingham principles. Many of our students show signs of dyslexia, the most common cause of reading problems. All training and materials are provided free of charge.
Volunteers must attend 12 hours of training. Each volunteer is paired with one student. Schedule is flexible based on the needs of the student and the volunteer. Given the training investment, a one year commitment is preferred. Volunteers should expect to tutor 2 hours a week once training is completed.
New tutors are always needed.
