You can make a world of difference! Volunteer to help M-A’s English Learners.
Volunteer tutors help students who are learning English in M-A’s beginning and intermediate English Language Development (ELD) classes. Most of the students are relatively new to the U.S. and face huge challenges as they attempt to learn in a new language and new educational system. Volunteers give English learners an opportunity to practice English conversation and offer individual support on schoolwork. Familiarity with a second language is not required.
Tutors focus on reading, writing, vocabulary and conversation.
Tutors are usually assigned to one period on a block day, which makes the weekly commitment about two hours.
Tutors work with a maximum of two students under the direction of a classroom teacher.
Tutors are needed at the following times: Wednesday, 3rd period 11:15-12:55; and Thursday, 2nd period 9:40-11:20.
This is a terrific opportunity for parents to get involved in a constructive and rewarding way by working directly with students and teachers.
