Students: will you be in Champaign-Urbana this summer? If so, please consider this tutoring opportunity. You can continue to use your Spanish, work in the community and provide important support for this individual child's learning. See the information below:
"Are you aware of anyone with Spanish-speaking skills who might be interested in tutoring a Kindergarten child this summer in a local summer school program?
"There is a young Spanish-speaking child in Kindergarten who attends Booker T. Washington Elementary School. He recently came to the school with very little language development. The child has made significant progress this semester with the help of the classroom teacher, literacy specialist, speech language support, a classroom tutor, and the SOAR after-school program. The principal and teachers at BT Washington want to make sure that the student’s Spanish language development is not lost over the summer. They are in the process of possibly developing a specialized summer school program for the student. Summer school will take place from 8 a.m. – 12 a.m., June 15-July 10, at Kenwood Elementary in Champaign. Since the summer school classes are taught in English, they are looking for a Spanish-speaking tutor or tutors to work one-on-one with the Kindergarten student in a pull-out program. Instructional materials will be provided for the tutor/s.
"Please contact me if you are aware of anyone with Spanish-speaking skills who might be interested in this rewarding volunteer opportunity in our community.
