2. Spanish GED Tutor: Open to bilingual (Eng/Spanish) adults interested in helping adult students prepare to take the GED in Spanish.
2.5hrs/wk during the spring semester (Tuesday or Thursday evening)
WSISD-Family Resource Center (76108)
Details: Adults without a high school diploma come to classes across the Metroplex ready to make a difference in their lives by earning a GED. Tutoring is extremely valuable in GED preparation, in particular for students starting at a lower level benefit tremendously from extra help and encouragement to persist in their studies.
We are looking for tutors specifically working with adult students preparing to take the GED in Spanish. Tutors will work with their students in small groups to master the core GED subjects: Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science. Spanish knowledge is especially critical in writing grammar and mechanics.
Commitment of 2-3 hours per week is required for at least 6 months. Classes meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings in White Settlement (76108). Please fill out our online volunteer candidate form (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDhOSDFFNVZWNzRlNlNzbzBBS21MZWc6MQ#gid=0) to be contacted about available positions and program details.
