Volunteer Teachers for Teach For Lebanon
KIVATO EDUCATION CENTER
Kivato Education center is a nonprofit education company that has been serving students with needs since 2014.
Kivato Education Center has recently partnered with Teach for Lebanon to accomplish the following:
- Empower teachers in providing quality education in an online format and training them on a variety of tools that may be available or collaboration workflows tools that Kivato can share.
- Guide teachers in organizing Standardized Curriculum that parallels U.S. common Core standards.
- Assist in locating or creating standardized testing norms and informal assessments to measure student progress.
- Furthering our research and impact in helping students with learning disabilities worldwide.
- Furthering our research and impact in developing a student's English Language skills along with language/speech delays.
To accomplish all the goals listed, we will need a number of volunteer teachers to help us help Teach for Lebanon in their time of need.
The opportunity officially starts on October 5th and will last throughout the month. We are currently looking for volunteers with a Bachelor's Degree or higher in Education, certified teachers, or those with counseling experience.
We are also asking that volunteers commit 4-6 hours a month. Since Lebanon is 8 hours ahead of the Central time zone, the available hours for the position are from 5PM to 3AM CST.
About KIVATO EDUCATION CENTER
104 INDUSTRIAL BLVD, SUITE Q, SUGAR LAND, TX 77478, US
At Kivato Education Center, we believe that money should not determine who is able to receive a quality education and strive to provide low-income families with quality academic support. Through our status as a 501 (c) (3) and by offering small group tutoring sessions, opposed to typical one-on-one help, we are able to keep our prices 40-60% below that of commercial tutoring services. Additionally we work to build a mentor-type connection between tutor and tutee that fosters confidence and creates a level of comfort at which guidance may be offered and accepted.
Who We Are
We are a non-profit organization based in Houston that offers supplemental education to under served communities and under privileged families. We provide academic professionals to provide tutoring, test prep, and learning disability therapy, to students grade K-12. We also help families that need help finding affordable private school options for students who struggle to learn in the traditional class environment. What We Do
We provide tutoring, mentorship, supplemental education, and guidance to students in under served communities and under privileged families. Many of our experiences and backgrounds are similar to those we teach and this allows for us to provide vital information and networking skills that can be left out from traditional tutoring centers. This can include helping with choosing a major, improving studying habits, selecting a career, or anything else that stems from our experiences. This can also include that extra push from another voice that can relate.
