If you are at all interested in working with middle school students to provide homework help and tutoring in a positive learning environment, consider volunteering with Breakthrough Cincinnati's Academic Accelerator program hosted at Walnut Hills High School. Breakthrough (BTC) is a four-year, tuition-free academic enrichment program for highly motivated middle school students from underserved and/or underrepresented communities. During the school year, BTC provides tutoring opportunities at Walnut Hills to help our students to stay ahead of their school work and to provide a strong support system.
For this program to be successful, we need awesome volunteers to tutor. That’s where you come in! If you choose to tutor, you will gain volunteer hours, improve your teaching/tutoring skills, and get to spend time with awesome BTC students. The following will be expected of you:
- You will volunteer consistently 1-3 times/week from 3:00-4:30.
- You will help BTC students with their homework and create a supportive environment.
- You will be fully engaged in the tutoring sessions and show respect and cooperation to all involved.
A more detailed Tutoring Contract will be sent to those who decide to volunteer.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email Breakthrough's Program Director at email@example.com and indicate the following:
- Why you want to volunteer with BTC.
- Why you would be a positive role model and tutor for 6-8th grade students.
- Your availability (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday).
- How many days a week you are willing to volunteer (1, 2, or 3).
- What subject areas you are most comfortable tutoring.
- Whether you can tutor students in Latin.
Please reply by Wednesday, September 28 at 5PM.
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing back.
