Description

POSITION OVERVIEW

Position Responsibilities

Volunteers will tutor students, grades 1st - 8th grades, with general studies for basic homework help. No specific subject expertise is needed. The Okemos community is diverse with many families speaking English as a second language. Many times the tutor will help more than one child from the same family.
