Tutors Wanted

Tutoring and mentors are needed to work with Schreiber High School students for whom English is a second language. Tutors assist with English, Social Studies, Math, and Science. 

This year, the needs of the ESL Dept at Schreiber are particularly challenging. Almost all of the students requiring tutoring are exceptionally weak in English and would be best served by tutors who will be able to communicate in Spanish. Tutors are needed to donate at least 2 hours a week to devote to a well deserving high school student, between the hours of 3 and 8 PM.  Tutoring can occur either at Schreiber or the Port Washington Library. Mentors can also provide guidance with college selection, career choices, resume writing, etc.  Additional math tutors (teens preferred) are needed at this time.
