French Tutor - Library Homework Club Program (Ottawa East, West, South, Central)
Are you a student, professional, retiree or someone who loves working and being around kids? We have the perfect opportunity for you.
United for Literacy Ottawa is currently looking for tutors to help children and youth grades 1 to 6 (ages 6 to 12) with their French homework as well as their French reading and writing skills to accommodate the high demand for French learning support in Ottawa.
Volunteering with the Homework Club Program is an excellent way to gain experience in early childhood education or literacy tutoring! It is also an ideal environment to contribute meaningfully to your community. We require no prior teaching experience and provide you with all of the training and materials you need. Just bring your communication skills, patience, enthusiasm and love of learning!
WHERE AND WHEN DO OUR ACTIVITIES TAKE PLACE?
We have programs available in East, West, South and Central Ottawa. You will be placed at a site based on your location preference, available positions and program needs. The library programs run after school for about an hour and the start-end times range from 4pm to 7:30pm depending on the location.
