D65 Volunteer Tutor Programs https://sites.google.com/district65.net/fluencytutorprograms/home?authuser=0 This District 65 program pairs volunteers with students for individual tutoring in reading. The program trains volunteers in a specific tutoring technique so that they can best partner with teachers to support students' reading abilities. Children who read fluently are better able to understand and retain the information that they read which, in turn, supports their academic achievement. How and When Can I Help? As a trained volunteer, you support one elementary school teacher (1st- 5th grade) working with 1 or more students throughout the school year. Tutors volunteer at all 12 elementary and magnet schools, from October through May, during school hours (9am to 3:30pm). This District 65 math tutoring program was created to support 1st grade students who might benefit from a little extra math skills practice. By playing simple math games with the students (all materials provided), tutors will help students practice fundamental, age-appropriate math facts that will help increase students’ growth in mathematical achievement. How and When Can I Help? As a trained volunteer, you support one teacher by meeting with 1 to 2 students to play games (materials provided) 1-2 times per week for 20-30 minutes at a time. Tutors volunteer at all 12 elementary and magnet schools, from October through May, during school hours (9am to 3:30pm).
