Tutoring and other opportunities:
1) HELPS Tutoring is sponsored by Read Charlotte and is aimed at improving reading fluency and comprehension. HELPS stands for Helping Early Literacy with Practice Strategies. The tutor works one-on-one with students for 10-15 minutes, and can tutor 2 or 3 students in 1 hour. A 3 hour training session is provided, along with continued support.
One tutoring slot is open: Fridays from 10:30am - 11:45am (available as of Feb 9, 2019)

2) HEART Math Tutoring: One volunteer is needed to tutor a 4th grader from 1:15-1:45 PM on either Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. And HEART hopes to add a few more students by mid February who will need tutors from 12:45-1:45 PM on any day of the week, except Friday.
To sign up or get more information contact Debbie Marshall, Montclaire's Program Coordinator at [email protected] or Cydney Kramer at [email protected].
3) Teacher Partners: This volunteer opportunity is a wonderful way to support an individual teacher in a manner that is most helpful to that teacher. The schedule would be worked out between the teacher and volunteer. Tasks might include helping with parties, cutting out die pieces, working on bulletin boards, etc. You can talk with Townley Moon, Susan, Flynn, Kim Lee or Rebecca Cooper to find out what the experience has meant to them.
Please contact Ellen Harris at [email protected] for additional information or to sign up.
4) Augustine Literacy Project tutors change lives by helping teach students to read. Visit Augustine Literacy Project for more information. Please talk with any of these Selwyn members who have served as Augustine tutors: Nancy Bobbitt, Beth Carter, Eleanor Hahn, Eleanor Moore, Malyn Pratt, and Allison Tibe.
All Selwyn Avenue Presbyterian members who volunteer to work with children during the school year should take our church's Child Protection Training every 3 years. Please look out for publicity about future training sessions.
