GED Program Seeks Volunteer Tutors
(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA • November 14, 2014)— Are you interested in obtaining personal satisfaction and fulfillment by helping adult learners work toward accomplishing their academic goals? Then become a volunteer tutor! Delaware County Community College’s grant-funded Adult Basic Education and GED program is seeking volunteer tutors and classroom assistants to help prepare adult learners for the GED test.
Volunteering requires at least a six-month commitment, and volunteers must have a bachelor’s degree or be enrolled in a four-year degree program. This includes community college students who are enrolled in a transfer program that will lead to a four-year degree. All volunteers also must attend a one-on-one training session offered at the Marple Campus (901 South Media Line Road, Media).
Tutors work one-on-one with students for three hours per week in a public place. The College is currently looking for volunteers who can:
- Help English-speaking immigrants who need to improve basic reading, writing and math skills before advancing to the GED classroom
- Assist adult students from Delaware and Chester Counties who need to improve basic reading, writing and math skills before moving into the GED classroom
- Help students who have not completed their GED credentials and are in need of higher-level math skills
- Serve as classroom assistants and support GED instructors and students in the classroom
