Brock volunteers needed to tutor K-12 students

Brock University students have an opportunity to help local learners from kindergarten to Grade 12 through the Brock Learning Lab’s (BLL) tutoring programs this spring.

The BLL is accepting applications for volunteer tutors and interns for its Spring Term math and literacy tutoring programs. Tutoring sessions will be held both in person and online and run from Monday, May 1 to Friday, June 1.

“The lab offers Brock students a supportive environment to gain experience with literacy and numeracy screening and intervention strategies they could use in the future as educators,” says Tiffany Gallagher, Professor in the Faculty of Education and Director of the BLL.

Volunteer tutors and interns will meet with clients for at least one hour per week for five weeks. Working with Brock faculty and BLL supervisors, tutors and interns will also create engaging weekly learning plans and provide progress reports to parents.

As well as training and support from BLL staff, tutors and interns will also have access to an extensive collection of instructional resources.

In addition to weekly tutoring, BLL interns are responsible for organizing, updating and developing K-12 learning resources to ensure they align with the BLL’s standards and programming.

Brock faculty and BLL supervisors provide tutors and mentors with support, resources and training in developing individualized lesson plans using evidence-based strategies and instructional methods.

To learn more or apply as a volunteer tutor or intern, please visit the BLL website. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, April 26.
