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 dlhare@seattleschools.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! To find more and to register, please visit www.investinyouth.org/become-a-tutor/ or contact Alison Allen, Program Director at 206-316-6356 or aallen@investinyouth.org

  1. Invest in Youth is a wonderful organization. I have been tutoring with them for over 13 years!
    It is the easiest and most efficient way to make a difference to youth in your neighborhood. Just walk into the school and you sit and learn & tutor ONE student, ONE hour a week for ONE school year. You get the same student each time so you personally can mark their progress. It is the best reward ever. They make it so easy & fun. You do not have to know math very well, so do not be scared off by that. The most vital ingredient is being there for ONE child. Showing up is 99%.
