Student Tutors Needed On Monday Afternoons

In 2015-2016, the College of Education is continuing its partnership with WITS (Working in the Schools) to tutor children from Bouchet International Academy. WITS transports 20 to 25 children to the Gage Building on Monday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., and the College's responsibility is to recruit the 20 to 25 tutors needed to work with the children. Each tutor works with one child for the hour, participating in a warm-up activity and then reading with the child and helping the child with her or his homework.
This semester, Fall 2015, the tutoring will begin either in late September or early October and continue through the academic year. Prospective tutors must have background checks (paid for by WITS) and must participate in an orientation session, to be scheduled in September. If you are interested in being a tutor or have questions about tutoring, contact Judy Gouwens at jgouwens@roosevelt.edu or 312-853-4774.
