Youth Tutor

Purpose/objective: KOM leads afterschool programs at Humboldt and Harding high schools in St. Paul to provide academic, cultural and social support for Karen youth who have been in the U.S. under 5 years. KOM’s Youth and Family Coach program also works with refugee youth in different schools in St. Paul who need extra academic support. Tutors focus on providing homework help for students.

*Due to COVID-19, tutoring is happening both online and in-person.*

Key Responsibilities:

  • Help high school students with homework one-on-one or in small groups
  • Homework subjects vary by student, but include general high school courses (English reading and writing, History, Math, Science)
  • Encourage students to practice study skills
  • Practice English reading, writing, or conversation with students who have limited English proficiency

Time commitment: Available to tutor at least 2 hours/week during the afterschool program. Available tutoring times are from 3:00pm to 5:00pm, or 5:00pm – 7:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Location: Remote and in-person opportunities. Afterschool program has returned to meeting in-person for the 2021-2022 school year. Tutors have the option of meeting with students virtually through Google Meet while the students are in the afterschool classroom, or coming to the classroom in-person (proof of vaccination or regular testing required for in-person)*. Tutors working with the Youth and Family Coach program will work with students virtually who will join the session from home.

*required by Saint Paul Public Schools

Qualifications: Patient, flexible and self-motivated college students or adults who have a passion to tutor high school students with limited English proficiency.

Measures: Volunteers are required to sign in and out at the start and end of their volunteering each day on our sign in sheet located in the classroom. Virtual tutors must log their hours online through our online database system.

Benefits: The tutor has the opportunity to grow their tutoring skills for students with limited English proficiency and enhance their cross-cultural communication skills.
