Local kids need you: Can you be an after-school homework helper?

From Romina at Neighborhood House:

Are you a retired teacher? Are you currently pursuing a degree in education and would like to increase your teaching experience in a culturally diverse setting? Are you a previous camp counselor or someone who has worked with elementary-school students and knows how to effectively work with them? An hour a week could do wonders for our local students and their academic success.

Neighborhood House (www.nhwa.org) has an immediate need for reliable, patient volunteer after-school tutors at Mt. View Elementary in White Center. Volunteer your time helping students with their homework. Show them how to break big words into syllables. Tell them your secrets on how to solve fractions. Inspire them to do well in school. Your presence alone will make these energetic students smile.

We’re looking for people who are available for at least an hour between 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. once a week for at least three months. If you (or anyone you know) are interested in becoming an after-school tutor, please e-mail RominaR@nhwa.org for more information on how to get started as an after-school tutor.
