Tutor-Student Pair at PAUS

WHAT: Help a student who has been referred by a teacher because they need extra support after school at one of our five after-school Learning Centers in the Public Schools. Please note this volunteer job lasts until approximately mid May 2022. Students are waiting for tutors now!

You’ll be a consistent, weekly adult presence, tutoring an individual student to whom you’ve been matched. Academic tutoring is one part of the job. Your student may need help with one subject or with several. Most students who come to us need other kinds of coaching as well. You may need to help them with organizing their assignments, with study skills, and with learning to understand what helps them learn best . Don’t worry-We’ll help you get to know your student in the first few weeks. We have board games and known strategies for building relationships with this age group. Your tutoring relationship will be for the equivalent of at least one semester, but a full year commitment is ideal.

WHO: The Cambridge Public Schools educate students in Grade 6-8 in four upper schools and at one K-8 Dual-Immersion Spanish/English school. CPS students are from a wide variety of backgrounds, of different abilities and challenges. At one of the upper schools where we run a Learning Center after school, 33% of students are categorized as economically disadvantaged; 25% speak a home language other than English; and 45% of the student body falls into the "high needs" designated. These data are from the Commonwealth's Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education.

WHERE:
CSV’s Learning Centers, located at one of five public middle ("upper") schools.

WHEN:
3:00-4:30 p.m., once a week after school. We have opportunities open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
