Frontier College Ottawa’s Homework Club program provides homework help to children and youth all over Canada. We are currently offering online tutoring support to students, which provides greater flexibility and convenience for both volunteers and students.

Frontier College Ottawa is currently looking for tutors to help children and youth grades 1 to 6 (ages 6 to 12) with their French homework as well as their French reading and writing skills to accommodate the high demand for French learning support in Ottawa.

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!

Tutoring sessions occur once a week via video conference call (Zoom, MS Teams, Google Classroom) and last approximately one hour each. Sessions are scheduled based on tutors’ and learners’ availability. When our programs start to return back in person, sessions will be held at partnering public libraries in Ottawa. More details on the library program will soon follow.

Please note that to be eligible for this opportunity you need to comfortable with speaking, reading and writing in French.

**You must be at the minimum age of 16 to be eligible for this volunteering opportunity**

Only those that are selected will be contacted for an interview.

We look forward to meeting you!
