America Counts Tutoring Fall 2018
The America Counts program in the Oberlin community pairs Oberlin College students to work with children in grades Kindergarten through ninth grade, within Oberlin City School District classrooms and community after school programs. America Counts tutors work with children on mathematical concepts, through tutoring and enrichment programming. Tutors may work with children in classrooms in small groups or one-on-one, to support the learning of mathematics, or in afterschool programs assist with mathematics homework, ongoing mathematics concept support and/or mathematical enrichment. This is a paid position for Oberlin College students who have a Federal Work Study Award and are selected to work within this program, via a competitive application process.
Tutors work a consistent schedule based on the needs of teachers within OCSD, program directors in after school programs, and Oberlin College student academic and extra curricular schedule. Tutors are offered ongoing, paid training opportunities and meetings to learn tutoring techniques, review state and local educational policy, and understand student development. The America Counts program is directed by Susan Pavlus, Director Education Outreach Programs at the Bonner Center.
