You may volunteer as a math tutor. Most commonly, you will be tutoring someone who is preparing to take the GED exam -- or perhaps someone who has worked with a literacy tutor to learn to read and write, and is now ready to move on to math instruction. You may teach someone in conjunction with a literacy tutor, depending on the student's needs.
A college degree in math or work experience in engineering or math related fields is helpful.
We may not have someone you can tutor right away -- we need math tutors when our students need them. You may have a short term or a long term relationship with a student; it depends on the student's goals and needs.
This is what is expected of an adult literacy math tutor:
- Keep the information you learn about your student confidential.
- We recommend you meet with your learner two times a week -- an hour each session.
- You and your learner may have a different schedule depending on work and family commitments.
- For every hour of tutor time, expect an hour of preparation time. Paper work. Every month you will fill out two forms: a tutor evaluation form about your student's work and a timesheet.
