Ashley Baeten tutors students in math.
"I truly enjoy tutoring. I like to think that I am helping these adults one day at a time learn necessary skills." -Ashley Baeten

Thank you for your interest in volunteering!    

Most volunteers help in morning, afternoon, or evening classes. Their subjects include ELL (ESL), math, writing, reading, and computer basics. Volunteers might work with individuals, small groups, or the entire class. It depends on each teacher's needs.

Time commitments range from 1-3 hours per week, M-F. The volunteer coordinator will give you details of classes that fit your interests and schedule.
