Tutoring Opportunity for Buffalo Public Schools

Posted by Tim on November 1, 2020 in Career Opportunities, Honors Experiences, Honors Program Announcements, Job Opportunity, Networking, New Programs, Tutoring, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

We are beginning a tutoring program with high school students from Buffalo Public Schools, and as such, we are seeking undergraduate-level tutors, particularly those in math and science. 

Tutoring will be held Monday-Thursday between 2-5 p.m. We are asking that those who are interested commit to at least two afternoons per week.

Ideally, we are looking for tutors who could qualify for a Work Study program; that would allow them to be paid for their time. Otherwise, the tutors would need to work on a volunteer basis.

You can apply on Handshake and can certainly reach out to me directly with any questions. 

Thank you for your consideration and help with this matter!
