SHC's Homework Helpers provide one-on-one assistance to children in Elementary School.
Tutoring may cover basic study skills (how to organize papers or how to search for information on the Internet); help with assignments (worksheets and science projects); math drills; spelling; and reading skills. Most children who get tutored through Homework Helpers are English language learners and benefit from one-on-one support and practice.
Tutoring is usually provided by High School or College student volunteers.
This is a fun and rewarding opportunity for High School or College students who are interested in meaningful cross-cultural engagement. Volunteers don't need prior experience. Onsite SHC staff members are available to provide support and tutoring tools. Volunteers can receive Student Service Learning Hours (SSL).
Saturdays from 9:45am-12:00pm (no tutoring during MCPS or PGCPS holidays)
