I thought I’d pass this along. A few folks have expressed an interest in tutoring opportunities. This is a unique opportunity, as tutors are helping adult students who are studying to take the GED. A lot of new updates have been made to the test-I have been studying on my own to refresh my memory on some topics so that I can become a better tutor, and it is somewhat challenging. I think it’s really important to tell our youth to stay in school and earn a diploma, because this test is not easy! As a tutor, expect to assist with the basic high school subjects-only the areas that you are most comfortable with.
Seeds of Literacy is thrilled to announce the opening of our new east side location! Located at 13815 Kinsman Road (at the corner of Kinsman & E. 139th Street), the site is an opportunity for Seeds to bring our award-winning program to adult learners on the east side of Cleveland. The site is set to open mid-September, and will hold morning and afternoon classes as well as registration for new students.
We’ve already received many calls from adults interested in attending classes there, so now we just need one key element: tutors! If you’re interested in helping to get our new location off the ground and provide the same amazing one-to-one tutoring that has made our program such a success, please contact me at 216-661-7950 x10 or email@example.com for more info.
