Additional Comments: Boston Partners in Education is looking for volunteers to tutor and mentor Boston Public Schools students during the academic year. No previous tutoring experience is needed to participate, just a willingness to work with students and to help them achieve their full potential. Our volunteers commit to working with students during the school day and in some after-school and Saturday morning programs for one hour each week. Opportunities are available for all K-12 grades in the areas of math and literacy. Personal interview, reference check, and Boston Partners in Education training in both mentoring and tutoring are required.
