Title: Seeking Volunteer Tutors for grade school special ed. kids
About the organization:
Learning Strategies Prep LSP is a 501c nonprofit organization, providing special education services to students.
I am seeking an experienced, creative, and qualified tutor for LSP’s On-Line Private Tutoring Services/sessions with kids
About Job/Job Description:
Location: on-line via Zoom, virtual classroom
Commitment: through the school year, 10 months about
Grades: these two kids are in 2nd and 6th grades
Volunteer tutors are assigned 1-2 students to work with for the school year. LSP matches up a tutor (tutor’s experience, preferences, and more) with a student(s) who they can help. Tutors meet with their student(s) 2 days per week for 1 hour each day.
For a 1 hour tutoring session you would get to help a student in a subject they need help the most with, such as Math, English, Test Taking Skills. Tutors will be given school assignments or homework 2 days in advance from parent, so tutors can see what students are working on for that week and prepare.
You may also prepare and provide your own practice sheets for your student to work on.

*Please be mindful that we work with special ed. students, so they require a lot of visuals, examples, Motivation, and patience.

*Hiring paper work and process: interview, volunteer job application, 1 reference
*Some experience working with young kids
*Tutoring or teaching experience
Trainings: There are trainings and learning opportunities
Volunteers get to teach a class and do fun activities with kids. Programs/classes are small, so you get to see kids grow and develop as you help them with their learning strategies and life skills. I have been a volunteer myself, so I know what it is like to teach kids, and see how excited they get when you can inspire them to do anything! This is the experience you get when working with LSP.
