Homework Club Volunteer Tutor - Cumberland Library
WHAT DO OUR VOLUNTEERS DO?
United for Literacy Ottawa’s (previously Frontier College Ottawa) Homework Club program provides homework help to children and youth all over Canada. United for Literacy Ottawa is currently looking for tutors to help children and youth grades 1 to 6 (ages 6 to 12) with their homework as well as their reading and writing skills.
Volunteering with the Homework Club Program is an excellent way to gain experience in early childhood education or literacy tutoring! It is also an ideal environment to contribute meaningfully to your community. We require no prior teaching experience and provide you with all of the training and materials you need. Just bring your communication skills, patience, enthusiasm and love of learning!
WHERE AND WHEN DO OUR ACTIVITIES TAKE PLACE?
This program will take place at the Cumberland Library on a weekday evening at 6:00-7:30pm (the specific day of the week is still TBD, but will be chosen based on the volunteers’ availability). However, volunteers can choose to tutor virtually or opt for a hybrid model (half in person and half online) if they wish.
If you are tutoring online, tutoring sessions occur once a week via Zoom/MS Teams/Google Meets video conference call and last approximately one hour each. Sessions are scheduled based on tutors’ and learners’ availability.
