Tutoring is Good for the Brain



Dear Voluntutor,

Isn't it wonderful that helping streetkids don't just benefit the children but also those who help them?  

Last Saturday, someone came up to me and asked, why do the children respect you?  How did you get them to do that? I didn't really know how to answer that, I wasn't just so happy to hear it.  Indeed we are blessed with such good kids!  

Tutoring them doesn't just teach them about academics!  You teach them many more lessons of life! 

Come this Saturday?

We will need 15 more volunteers.  Please be sure to alert me if you plan to come - text 09985513165 so
you can be informed of any last minute announcements.

You don't have to be a whiz at Math and English, and no teaching experience is required - we just need you to listen to the children
and to help them read books and worksheets (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 an hour 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:

*PLEASE ask for directions before Saturday because sometimes, we are
already doing the orientation and some volunteers are lost because we
are already busy and were not able to answer the calls.


THINGS TO BRING:
- bring water, you might get thirsty!
- snacks to share with kids and volunteers (optional)
- ballpen and scratch paper
- just some enthusiasm!!!
- OPTIONAL: If you have wifi that would help a lot for questions we can't
answer but someone else's can be borrowed in case you don't have :)


This Saturday is coming and we pray that:

1. We will have a good attendance of both volunteers and children.
2. That that children will be able to enjoy the session and be better at school.
3. That the volunteers will enjoy their session with the children.

Here are the latest schedules for future sessions.

(Usually 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month)

        and setting up the venue (arranging chairs, putting books and materials
        on the tables etc)

        *when the volunteers come earlier,we can start tutoring earlier


*PLEASE ask for directions before Saturday because sometimes, we are
already doing the orientation and some volunteers are lost because we
are already busy and were not able to answer the calls.

If you cannot be there but want to help, we need:
+ offer to photocopy exercise sheets
+ lesson plans / activity sheets (grades 1 to 6)
+ urgent need: filing cabinet or locked cabinet for the books


This Saturday is coming and we pray that:

1. We will have a good attendance of both volunteers and children.
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.

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
emulate.

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 reply to me.
Please confirm if you are coming so we can assign you a child
to Shannon at shannon_capati@yahoo.com

Lastly do tell us if you are coming!!!  Sometimes there are last minute
changes with the venue so we need your confirmation.

Blessings!

Christina Alejandro
Volunteer Coordinator

P.S.  If you cannot come this Saturday, please come next time!

*Please feel free to pass this e-mail invite to anyone who may be interested to join us!
