VOLUNTEER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A PROMISING BALTIMORE CITY STUDENT!!
VOLUNTEER TUTORS are needed to work with our students once a week!
¡Adelante Latina! meets from early September to early June, with a 5-week break from mid-December to late January. The program takes place twice a week from 4:15-6:15 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Esperanza Center located at 430 S. Broadway. On one day, students meet as sophomore, junior and senior cohorts with a teacher; on the other day each student has her own tutor. The hope is for tutors to continue with the same student for all three years of the program. (**Due to the fire in Fells Point in September 2018, our program is temporarily located at Notre Dame University of Maryland.)
Tutors are expected to speak proper, grammatical English. Although teaching experience is not required, it is helpful. Tutors must be able to teach reading comprehension, writing skills and vocabulary on a high school level. If they are teaching juniors or seniors, tutors will also help with the SAT verbal test preparation. Answers to the SAT questions are always provided but the tutor is expected to explain them. In general, assignments provided by the ¡Adelante Latina! teacher are given priority, followed by help with school assignments in the humanities.
No knowledge of Spanish is required!!
