ESOL tutors work either 1-on-1 or with small groups of students in the SBU Academy or Global Youth League who are currently designated as English Language Learners (ELL). Tutoring is a mix of homework help and, for the Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors, a set curriculum aimed at ensuring that they pass the Regents Exams, SATs, and fulfill all of their graduation requirements respectively. This is the same course of study that all of the non-ELL students follow. Tutors meet with students, ages 11-18, for 2 hours on a set day every week. Tutors work with the same group of students every week. This provides tutors the opportunity to build relationships and to serve as a positive role model in youths' lives while also promoting the importance of education.
An orientation and training will be provided before beginning service to provide general guidelines, best practices, tutoring tips and to go over the specific needs of the students.
In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow underserved students to thrive in school, SBU is happy to connect with your school to see if your volunteer hours can work towards school service or academic requirements.
Academic Coaches are welcome and encouraged to come out and see a game or get involved in a practice as youth are extremely passionate about the sport and it's a great way to connect with the kids.
