Become an Online Tutor with Step Up Tutoring (MLK Day)
The past two years have exacerbated existing educational inequities, with many students suffering from significant learning loss. Only 50% of students test proficiently in English and 40% test proficiently in math. Students who fall behind often never catch up. The path to improving these numbers is through mentoring, confidence-building, and extra instruction, which is where you come in!
VOLUNTEER ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES: Volunteers will learn about how tutors support our students by hearing from an experienced volunteer tutor and an LAUSD representative. We will also hear how Step Up Tutoring has already impacted thousands of students and teachers, and how volunteers can support their program.
VOLUNTEER ACTIVITY: Volunteers will be able to fast-track through the tutoring orientation process by completing an application with the support of Step Up Tutoring experts, asking questions, and taking part in an exciting live training session.
- No tutoring experience is required!
- Reliable internet access
- Some technology capabilities: computer access, computer video camera, and computer microphone
- Commitment to two hours per week to work one-on-one with a student online, for at least 12 weeks (on a schedule convenient to the tutor)
