Posted on: December 10, 2012
The Winooski Teen Center offers academic tutoring to local youth on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings. Tutors assist with high school math, biology, and language arts projects on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday evenings. We provide the supplies, you provide the patience and guidance.
Tutors spend their shift assisting youth with their homework. They may work one-on-one with students or in small groups of 2-4, as needed. Tutors and students will have access to academic supplies, including calculators, geometry tools, computers, dictionaries, etc. Typical assignments include, but are not limited to: English papers, fractions, biology projects, multiplication, geometry, driver's ed., etc. Most of the youth we serve are refugees and New Americans; be prepared to work with youth for whom English is a second language.
Teen Center Tutors are focused and patient. They are creative problem-solvers who are able to adapt to various learning styles and English proficiency. They may have a subject specialty, but this is not a requirement.
