English/reading and math tutors

Amethyst Place is recovery housing for women and their children. Our families are overcoming lots of obstacles, from generational addiction and poverty to transportation and child care. Many of our moms establish goals for their education while they're with us - whether completing a GED or starting college courses. For several of them math and English (reading/writing and comprehension) are the major stumbling blocks. Can you help them?
We're looking for people who are available during the day (mostly weekday afternoons 1-4 pm but there may be some flexibility based on each woman's particular schedule) that have patience and like to work with people. Teaching skills are helpful but not necessary - as long as you can look at their text books or test questions and understand what they need to do and help explain. If interested, please consider checking out our website at www.amethystplace.org to learn more about us (the video on our homepage is a great overview of what we do and who our families are) and reply to this ad to connect with our Volunteer Coordinator. We're happy to answer questions and give you a tour before any volunteering is set up.
We'll work with your schedule.
