Posted on 08/19/2014

Communities In Schools of Puyallup (CISP) is seeking volunteers to tutor elementary students in reading and math.

 

Reading tutors are needed to assist students enrolled in the Good Samaritan Readers program.

 

The program serves students identified by teachers as needing extra help with reading skills in grades one through three at Karshner, Stewart, and Sunrise elementary schools and in grades one and two at Waller Road and Pope elementary schools.

 

Volunteers are asked to commit to about one hour a week on a set schedule between October and June. Tutoring sessions are generally held between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

 

After-school math tutors coordinated by CISP are also needed at Karshner, Stewart, and Sunrise elementary schools. Volunteers are asked to work with sixth graders for one hour two days a week for 10 weeks.

 

Training is provided for reading and math tutors. If interested in volunteering, contact CISP at (253) 840-8917.
