Gowanus In Unity Tutoring's goal is to give students individualized help with their schoolwork using volunteer tutors from the community. We are a very small program. Before you read further, please understand that you will be required to submit a medical including TB test annually at your expense. In addition you will submit a resume, three references and various other paperwork. You will be fingerprinted, and there will be a background check. If this is acceptable, please read further.
We are a "co-locator" to HeartShare Saint Vincent's Services under Cornerstone at Wyckoff Gardens Community Center, a New York City Housing Authority location.
Each new volunteer tutor is interviewed to determine his or her areas of academic strength and interest. The Tutoring Coordinator, Steven Shooman, then matches the strengths, motivations, and availability of the potential tutors with the needs and personalities of the students who have applied. Most tutors meet their students once a week, with sessions lasting one hour. This usually occurs during after school hours, that is Monday through Friday from 3:00 to 6:00.
The tutoring program culminates near the end of the school year and starts back again in September. Tutors should have an established schedule and be able to commit to their student for at least one full school year.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
