Soft Landing is looking for Volunteers for our after school tutoring program for middle school and high school refugee students.
This program was developed a year ago in response to frequent requests from refugee students for help with their homework. After a year of tutoring, the response from both teachers and students was unanimous: tutoring not only helped students do better in school but it also helped in providing a safe social space for students who are adjusting and acclimating to a whole new way of life. Some students come to hangout, dance, surf the web, and play games while others want serious help with algebra Science, and Writing.
The program runs Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-5:30. We are looking for individuals who are willing to commit to at least one day a week throughout the semester. Tutors need to feel comfortable working with students in at least 1 of the following subjects: Algebra, Geometry, Earth Sciences, or Essay writing/Research Papers. Preference given to tutors who can also help transport students. If you are interested please email gret[email protected] for more information.
