Tutors needed at Liberty Bell
Liberty Bell Junior/Senior High School is seeking volunteer tutors to help students with math, science, English, history and organizational skills.
No special skills are required, but volunteers should have a flexible time schedule and be committed to helping students succeed, according to volunteer tutor coordinator Laura Bitzes Thomas. “I will help place tutors with students based on personal experience and what age group they’re interested in working with,” she said.
Tutoring sessions may be scheduled before or after school or during advisory periods, Bitzes Thomas said.
Call 996-2215 for more information.
