Volunteer opportunity description

Overview:
SBU SAT Prep tutors follow a set curriculum in tutoring small groups (3-4 students) of juniors one evening a week to improve their level in the Math or Verbal/Writing sections of the SAT in preparation for the spring exam (May or June). Tutors will also assist students with homework and NY Regents Exam preparation when relevant. Tutors work with the same group of students week to week, allowing tutors to build relationships with the youth and serve as positive role models in youths' lives, promoting the importance of education.

When:

Mondays - Math OR Wednesdays - English
1st Semester: September - January
2nd Semester: February - June

Where:
Urban Assembly School for Careers in Sports, Mott Haven HS Campus, 730 Concourse Village West, Bronx, NY 10451

Commitment:
Tutors are asked to commit one evening a week to teaching one of the SAT subject areas for 2 hours a night for at least one semester (Sept-Jan or Feb-June). However, if a tutor would like to be more involved, he/she is always welcome.

Qualifications:
South Bronx United is looking for highly motivated, energetic volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of South Bronx youth. Tutors should possess either strong math or English skills and feel comfortable breaking down and explaining processes for problem solving. Tutors with prior experience taking the SAT is preferred, but not a strict requirement. It's not expected that tutors will know the answers to all problems, but they should feel comfortable in helping youth learn how to approach and work through challenging problems.

Training:
An orientation and training at the beginning of service will be run for all tutors to give general guidelines, tutoring tips and to go over the specific needs of the students. Additional training and "check ins" will be conducted intermittently throughout the course of the year.

Benefits:
In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow underserved students to thrive in school, SBU is happy to connect with your school to see if your volunteer hours can work towards school service or academic requirements.

Beyond Tutoring:
The boys and girls participating in the program are also members of the South Bronx United Travel Soccer Teams. Tutors are welcome and encouraged to come out and see a game or get involved in a practice as youth are extremely passionate about the sport and its a great way to connect with the kids.
