Heart Math Tutoring seeking volunteers for the Spring semester.

Heart is currently seeking volunteers for the Spring semester, as we have kids that need help with math but do not have enough tutors.  We think now might be a great opportunity for someone to try out tutoring for less than 3 months, now through April, to see if it works for them and also to see the impact 30 mins – 1 hour can have on a student.  See what other volunteers are experiencing here in this short video. 
As a reminder, Heart Math Tutoring connects volunteers to elementary students in high poverty CMS schools that are behind in grade level math.  Volunteers are paired with a student who is below grade level in math and then spend 30 min or 1 hour per week helping him/her build basic math skills and confidence!   We give an easy-to-follow curriculum with hands-on activities and games, and a Heart staff person is on site to make sure things run smoothly.  Volunteers can stop on the way in to work for the morning  sessions or later around lunch. 
Heart has several schools where we have the highest need for tutors.  Interested parties can click here if one of these school locations and times work for them.

Also, note that we are flexible with busy schedules as 65% of our tutors have full time jobs.  The on-site Heart coordinator will work with volunteers if they need to change the day that they come in.
