Time Commitment

A few hours per month

Duration

Short-Term (few weeks/months)


Description:

Nearly 75% of DC students perform at or below basic levels in reading and math, and without intervention, low-income students are at risk to lose 2 months of proficiency in reading and math this summer. YOU can change that!

FLOC is currently recruiting volunteer tutors for summer 2019. Our one-on-one tutoring program helps students achieve grade-level competency in reading and math. In just our 6-weeks of summer tutoring, students improve an average of 3 months in reading and math skills while gaining confidence in their abilities and avoiding the summer slide.

We need your help! Each new volunteer allows us to impact the life of one more child. Training and ongoing professional support from staff are provided, so no experience is necessary! However, we are looking for a few particular qualities from our tutors:

  • Patience
  • Creativity and flexibility
  • Fluency in the English language (Volunteers who are not native speakers of American English may be asked to tutor only in our math curriculum.)
  • A sense of humor!
  • Able and willing to commit for the full summer session

Will you join us as a volunteer tutor this summer? The commitment is 2 hours twice a week, in one of two programs:

  • Reading tutoring
  • Math tutoring
