Change the Direction

***** Hello everyone, due to the weather condition today we are sorry but we have to cancel the tutoring session.   The small children walk to the venue so we don't want them to get sick - we hope you can come on October 26 when we will have another one, stay safe everyone! *****

Greetings Volunteer!

We're nearing the end of our 5th year and we want to let you in on a
plan we have for the coming sessions!

Because of your time and effort in helping the children, they are visibly
improving in their academics, social skills and character.

We want to be able to help MORE children and plan to open up another
tutoring day for another area.  Please pray for this endeavor?  THANKS

Come this Saturday?

You don't have to be a whiz at Math and English, we just need you to listen
to the children and to help them read books (provided) and maybe understand
their lessons (if you need assistance, other tutors may be asked).  Don't be
apprehensive about forgetting the basics from gradeschool, we've forgotten
too.  It's a team and we help each other remember.  What's most important
is that these children make a friend who encourages them to go on.
Just 2 hours to encourage them that learning can be enjoyable (or that it is
possible to understand) is more than enough. Seeing people who care is enough.

Please join us on:
October 12, 2013 (Saturday)
1:00 to 3:00 pm
3rd floor, Brgy. Bungad

on the tables etc)

If you cannot be there but want to help, we need:
+ scratch paper
+ lesson plans / activity sheets (grades 1 to 2nd yr high)

This Saturday is coming and we pray that:
1. We will have a good number of tutors for the children coming.
2. That that children will be able to learn and excel in school.
3. That the tutors will enjoy their session with the children and take home wonderful memories.

Here are the latest schedules for future sessions.
October 12 & 26
November 9 & 23
December 7 (christmas party)

This Saturday:
We are calling for more volunteers!  Everyone is invited. 
You don't have to be a tutor.  You just need to have a
heart of compassion for these young ones.

What will we teach?  Primarily English and Math.  If you
are able to teach other subjects that is great but we don't
require professional tutors.  What we need are people
who are encouraging and positive for the children to

How?  Come and the children will ask you about their
homework or you can tell them a story or do some simple
arithmetic with them. 

Please consider coming.  When we lack tutors, we cannot give
the attention they badly need since we have to tutor 2 or 3 or
4 students at a time.  We aim to have one child to one tutor.

If you have more questions please feel free to send me a note.

Please confirm if you are coming so we can assign you a child
to Shannon at
