The Seattle Public Library is seeking volunteers to assist K-12 students with homework assignments and developing literacy and mathematics skills throughout the 2014-2015 school year.
Anne Vedella, the Library’s volunteer services coordinator, said successful Homework Helpers are comfortable interacting with students of all ages individually and in small groups. She explained that Homework Help is a drop-in program for students. “A volunteer does not work with one student throughout the school year,” she said. “Each week, the students and their requests for academic support may be different.”
“We are seeking volunteers who are well-rounded academically and enjoy helping students learn,” Vedella said. “You don’t need to be a subject expert to participate, although that is helpful, especially in the areas of math, reading, writing and science.”
You can find Homework Help (for all your school-related needs) at the following locations from Sept. 8, 2014, through June 11, 2015:
