PLEASE READ THROUGH THIS INFORMATION CAREFULLY so you understand the volunteer position you are applying for. If you have questions please call Shawn at (608) 244-3911 or email her at email@example.com
Our literacy programs serve adults, so we are only able to accept adults (18+) as volunteers. We also require our volunteer tutors to:
- Be reliable, patient, and kind
- Have regular access to email and the internet
- Watch our orientation video and attend training before tutoring
- Reliably get themselves to their tutoring site *on time* every week
- Commit to attending every week for an entire semester, with no more than two absences (excluding holidays)
Are you a math whiz interested in helping others in the community? We are looking for bilingual math tutors to work one-on-one with English and Spanish-speaking adults preparing for the Math portion of the GED this fall. Volunteers will be provided with tutor training, lesson plans, and ongoing support from the GED program director during the weekly 2-hour sessions. Many GED candidates struggle to pass the math portion of the test and individualized support can make all the difference in the world!

We are looking for tutors who speak both English and Spanish and are comfortable tutoring math in either language. Tutors must attend class every week, missing no more than two classes over the course of the semester.
Fall semester sessions to choose from (fall semester ends Dec 15):
- 6:00-8:00pm Thursday nights at Literacy Network
- 10:00am-12pm Friday mornings at Literacy Network
- Comfortable tutoring algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, percentages, fractions, and word problems in English or Spanish.
- Able to share effective study and test-taking strategies.
- Mature, dependable, patient, and kind.
- Non-judgmental and interculturally sensitive.
