- Tutor: Assist students with homework, study for a test or develop their reading and/or math skills. Each tutor visits their assigned student weekly, witnessing the effect their participation has on the student’s educational progress.
- Classroom Assistant: Come to an assigned class once a week for two hours (9:00 – 11:00 or 1:00 – 3:00) and assist the teacher in facilitating classroom activities. Responsibilities include individual tutoring, leading small group learning activities, art projects, checking papers and other helpful tasks.
