Tutor

Tutors encourage and motivate our students to achieve academic goals. They serve as instructors in SAT test preparation, mathematics, writing and critical thinking. We look for people who are passionate about sharing knowledge, patient and adaptable to students’ needs and abilities. Tutoring is held each Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. throughout the school year. You do not have to be a professional educator, however, proficiency in your topic is required.

Operations Volunteer

Our successful operation depends on volunteers who help with event planning, fundraising, marketing, organizing, and much more. In addition to the academic sessions, we also host field trips and events. All of these activities rely on volunteers to help plan and execute. These roles have a flexible requirement and are perfect for people looking to get involved, but unable to make a long-term commitment.
