Summer Tutor Volunteer Opportunity
Tutors for UC Clermont College English Preparatory Classes
The Literacy Council seeks volunteer tutors for English 0097 & 1000 Preparatory Reading, Writing and Composition Classes. Mastery in these classes allows the student entry into English Composition 1001. As a volunteer tutor you can expect:
tutoring to bolster confidence and provide positive feedback to the students
to offer tutoring assistance during class time (determined by instructor - i.e. if class meets three times a week, you may only be asked to attend one or two times per week)
to build in time to tutor before or after class (as your schedule permits.)
no previous experience as a tutor is necessary
a brief orientation with Literacy Council staff
This unique volunteer experience takes place either the entire Summer Semester: May 6, 2013 - August 10, 2013 or over two Half Sessions: May 6, 2013 - June 21, 2013 and/or June 24, 2013 - August 9, 2013 on the campus of UC Clermont College.
UC Clermont in Batavia offers Preparatory English Classes to students who need extra assistance with their reading and writing skills. The instructors who teach these classes have found that utilizing volunteer tutors have been extremely beneficial to both in the classroom assisting instructor and students and afterwards - providing additional tutoring for the students. Both tutors & students have been finding great enjoyment from the group and one-on-one interactions. Come spend some time at college!
These are the classes offered this semester that embrace tutors in the classroom. If your schedule allows, classes starting prior to 6:30 PM are in the greatest demand, so if you are available during the day, please consider a daytime tutoring class.
No Classes on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, 2013 or Independence Day, Thursday, July 4, 2013. Classes End August 7, 2013.
