Third Church has a thriving Tutoring Program at Pinnacle Elementary School #35, on the border of the City of Rochester and Brighton. During this health crisis, the program must reinvent itself and reach out in new ways. This ministry is seeking tutors who are comfortable with (or willing to learn) the Zoom platform, and can volunteer from home or office for 30 minutes or more per week. The subjects are basic math, reading, and writing, for grades kindergarten through six.

The school hours are from 7:00am to 2:00pm.  You may select times that work for you within those hours, in the subjects that you wish to tutor. Along with English speaking tutors, we also need tutors who are bilingual in Spanish.

You will be given the curricular materials, but it would be helpful if you have a whiteboard, large sticky notepad, and a blank wall.  You might even use an office conference room and get your company volunteering!

We will use this summer to prepare for the fall semester; tutoring will likely begin in October. Teaching experience is not required, but a willingness to work with children and sense of humor is helpful.
