Scotland Storm is looking for volunteers who can make time in their schedules to offer one-on-one or small-group tutoring with students in grades 1-8. If you are available to volunteer even one hour per week, we would love for you to join us! Please contact Renee TenEyck, our Director of Community Engagement, at ReneeT@Scotlandstorm.org.
What are the benefits of volunteering at Scotland Storm?
There are many! If you choose to tutor at Scotland Storm, you will be paired with the same student(s) over time, enabling you to form a relationship with the student(s) founded on trust, respect, and encouragement. By developing these relationships and being a critical part of each child's academic success, we hope that volunteers will feel rewarded and inspired by the work they are doing with our program.
What do volunteers do?
Volunteers serve as tutors either one-on-one or in small groups with students, helping the students complete their homework assigned for that day. If extra time remains, there are a variety of different educational games and activities available that volunteers and students can work on together.
All tutoring sessions take place in Cabin John Middle School. Our program operates from Monday-Thursday, 3pm - 6pm. Tutoring is broken up into three, one-hour sessions, so we ask that volunteers stay for a minumum of one tutoring session.
What is the commitment?
We ask that all volunteers commit to at least one academic semester of tutoring. All volunteers are required to be present each week for their agreed-upon tutoring time(s). If a volunteer needs to miss a week, he/she should notify the volunteer coordinator as early as possible.
