Background:
Pandemic Professors, a 501c3 organization, was founded in April 2020 with the mission of facilitating free online tutoring to students in underserved communities affected by the pandemic. We are a 100% volunteer-based organization. Our philosophy not only supports academic achievement but also emphasizes the importance of socio-emotional health.

We count on dedicated volunteers who are passionate about education and providing academic assistance to students who would otherwise fall behind. That’s where we need you! (This is terribly worded but there is the main point. Help to rephrase would be great!) (We rely on committed volunteers who have a passion for education and are dedicated to offering academic support to students at risk of falling behind. Your contribution is crucial in this endeavor! You will interact with families and help students perform and learn! Join our organization and help us empower our students as we lay a foundation for lifelong learning. )

Being an online tutor:
As a tutor, you are the lifeblood of this organization and are the one delivering services. We will pair you with a student who needs support in whichever standard K-12 subjects you want to teach (i.e., English, math, science, social studies, languages). You will interact with families and help your student(s) perform and learn!

We are looking for coding tutors, as we have seen the benefits and need for under-resourced students to gain skills related to the tech industry. We are also looking for ESL tutors to support our growing Spanish-speaking population.

To apply as a tutor, please copy and paste this link to your browser to reach us directly. (It only takes 2 mins to fill out!): https://forms.gle/Q7UgbKVSwyCBNkfA7


Requirements:
- 2 or more hours per week commitment (flexibility for job requirements, midterms and finals)
- Tutoring experience is helpful but not required. We offer guidelines and support.

Responsibilities:
- Engage and support students in their learning journey, covering subjects based on individual student needs
- Collaborate with other volunteers and program coordinators to ensure effective tutoring sessions
- Maintain records of student progress and provide feedback to students and supervisors

Benefits of joining Pandemic Professors:
-Improve diversity & inclusion in the tech industry by fostering hard skills and a sense of belonging in students from communities who are historically under-represented.
-Learn by teaching! Teaching others is a great way to improve your own skills. Teach at many levels, from introductory coding in languages like Scratch to more advanced levels (e.g., Python, Java)
-Flexible schedule: volunteer any day of the week, any time of day, wherever you are! We have volunteers from around the globe and students in many different time zones.
-Get recognized for your volunteer work with letters of recommendation for college, grad school; references for job applications; and more!

This is not only a way to help those in need and to benefit your personal resume, but also a way to build community. We are here to support each other through this time as well and hope you join us!

Mission Statement:
The mission of Pandemic Professors is to facilitate free tutoring to children in low-income communities impacted by the pandemic.Description:
At Pandemic Professors (Pan Prof), we believe all K-12 students deserve an opportunity to receive free supplemental learning through private tutoring, in order to help them remain on track and meet their educational goals. Our organization was founded to match underserved students across the United States with free online tutors.
Historically, students in underserved communities are at greater risk of falling behind in academics and socio-emotional skills. Much like Hurricane Katrina, the COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated the plethora of academic and personal challenges these students already face. Our organization presents students in low-income communities with opportunities to strengthen subject comprehension and boost confidence. The needs, strengths, and voices of the impacted students drive our family-centered philosophy and evidence-based practices.

Together with our partners, Pan Prof combats adverse effects on learning resulting from the pandemic and exacerbated by poverty. Students in underserved communities don’t lack a hunger for knowledge, they lack the means to access quality tutoring. Pan Prof provides effective tools for students to complete their K-12 education until the educational gap is resolved. We sincerely hope you consider joining us to improve the lives of students adversely affected by poverty and the pandemic.
