VOLUNTEER CHEMISTRY TUTORS NEEDED
Students enrolled in college-level General and Organic Chemistry courses in a dual credit (High School/College) program at Westside High School need our support. This intensive program, which is a partnership between Houston Independent School District and Houston Community College, leads to an Associate in Science Degree after the summer semester following the senior year in high school.
While students have tested ready for college-level work before they enter the program, their individual backgrounds in math and science vary, so they may need coaching in some areas. Also, remember that they are teenagers in grades 11 and 12, and will benefit from a little nurturing.
These opportunities would be ideal for retirees or others with a flexible schedule, usually in the daytime. Please submit your contact information to Maryanne Mores, ACS-GHS Coordinator of Volunteers, at firstname.lastname@example.org . Include your ACS membership number, any relevant teaching or tutoring experience you have had, and the days/times you would be available for tutoring. She will pass this on to the HISD Program Director, who will schedule your session. NOTE: You will also need to submit a photo ID and complete a brief registration and background check (free!) with HISD before you start.
