We are looking for a tutor for Wednesdays from 5pm to 6pm for a 5th grader in math and English. This is ongoing and we need someone immediately. Please be prepared to commit to an entire semester.

Your volunteer time would be one hour. We also need a back-up tutor for Wednesdays and/or Saturdays. If you cannot commit to all the time, but can be "on call," please let us know. Thanks!

The Details:

Sometimes the missing piece to success, whether in school or in employment goals, is support. The Learning Center provides people to support participants in their education and employment goals. We started this Learning Center (and hope to have more hours and locations in the future) because the more we can help people learn how to critically think and accomplish their goals, the more people there will be that can help to fix the problems of the world. We like that idea and hope you do, too! So far, every student that has participated in tutoring at our Learning Center has seen improvement in his/her grades and/or skills. Some of the students have seen significant improvements after just two sessions!

The Learning Center currently operates at Kempo Jujutsu Martial Arts Academy at 8929 Indianapolis Blvd. Second Floor, Highland, IN 46322.

How our tutoring works:

We are not only tutoring students, but we are trying to teach them to be excited about learning. We incorporate games, sports, and other activities (depending on the students’ interests) in order to keep the students interested and to reward them for putting extra effort into their learning by attending tutoring.

What we need:

We are looking for tutors in all subjects and at any level, K-college. We are open to having tutors of almost any age. We pair you with a student based on your knowledge and the level of the students. We will take high school, middle school, and college students as students. We would also love professionals, retired workers, or just about anyone! We want our students to have a variety of tutors and mentors to work with.

We are also interested in eventually offering certain test preparation help, such as GED prep or SAT and ACT. If you are interested in this, please let us know!

What we offer our volunteers:

For our volunteers, we try to offer as much as we can. We will offer refreshments while you’re here. We are also willing to help with recommendations, job searching, career counseling, etc. Not only will you be tutoring, but you will get to break it up with games and activities as needed.

Please contact us at info@becomingwethepeople.org. Thanks for your interest and we look forward to meeting you!
