Homework Club Volunteer Tutor (Ottawa East, West, South, Central)
Are you a professional, retiree, or student who loves working and being around kids? We have the perfect opportunity for you.
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 at various locations across Ottawa.
Volunteer as a literacy tutor at one of our following Library programs: St. Laurent Library, Orleans Library, Cumberland Library, Greensboro Library or Ruth E Dickinson Library. Alternatively, volunteers can choose to tutor virtually via Zoom, Google Meets or Microsoft Teams or opt for a hybrid model (half in person and half online) if they wish.
This opportunity provides 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?
Our library programs take place once a week during after school hours starting at 4:30pm, 5:30pm or 6:30pm and run for an hour to an hour and a half long. Specific date and times vary by location.
