Two notes about tutoring, a simple way to help kids:
First, the Sound Partners beginning-readers tutoring program is offering free training TODAY, 4-7 pm, in the library at K-5 STEM at Boren (5950 Delridge Way SW); this is training for tutoring at ALL schools that need help. If you can give as little as a half-hour a week, you are needed. If you have questions or can attend, contact school librarian Ms. Hare at 206-252-8474 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Separately, Invest in Youth needs a few more tutors at Roxhill Elementary – after school on Mondays:
For one hour, just once a week on your way home from work, you can go into a nearby Seattle grade school and tutor a child who needs a little extra help with his or her studies. Invest in Youth is looking for 6 more additional tutors to reach our goal of 20 tutors for the 2013 – 2014 school year. Participating in Invest in Youth requires a tutoring commitment of one hour per week (with several holidays) for the duration of the school year. Upon joining the program, you will be paired with an elementary school student in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade and work with that same student for the entire year, getting to know their strengths and weaknesses while tracking their progress from week to week. It is an extremely rewarding experience for both students and their tutors!
