Two days a week for one hour, exemplary junior high and high school students work one-on-one with 4th-6th grade students struggling in math at Karshner and Sunrise elementary schools. In addition to helping with homework and reinforcing key skills, the tutors develop fun and interactive games to encourage their students to embrace math and succeed academically. The tutoring also affords junior high and high school students an excellent opportunity for the completion of their service hours requirement for graduation.
We are are always looking for volunteer tutors for the beginning of every school year. If you are interested please get into contact with us.
Please note that all tutors must undergo a training session to familiarize themselves with the GSR curriculum and tutor responsibilities. Our training sessions are offered periodically at the Puyallup School District’s Educational Services Center, 302 Second Street SE, Puyallup, WA 98372.
In addition to attending a training session, all tutors need to complete an Online Volunteer Application on the Puyallup School District website; here is the link: PSD Volunteer Services. When applying, under “Volunteer Category,” you will want to select COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS. This will ensure we receive your application. At the end of the application you will then select the school(s) you are interested in volunteering at.
*Please note this is a new system, approvals are good for 2 years from the date of notification, unless otherwise indicated, so if you were approved to volunteer last year, you do not need to submit a new application until next year. To confirm your approval expiration date, you may contact your school office or email email@example.com.
If Interested please contact one of our Site Coordinators. For Sunrise Elementary School (6th grade) the Site Coordinator is to be determined and for Karshner Elementary School (4th-6th grade) please contact Kayla Prewitt.
