Masaya Mag-Tutor


Dear VolunTutor,
 
We always have a lot of smiles during Tutoring Sessions!  These children really love coming to meet the volunteers and asking questions so they can learn.

These children used to have blank stares and dress with holes in their shirts.  After more than 6 years of tutoring them 2x a month, there is really a marked difference.  You're helping them be confident and to finish their schooling!  You're such a blessing!

PS. This is the last regular tutoring session for 2015.  We are not opening the Christmas Party to volunteers because 2 organizations asked to sponsor those and they are bringing a lot of volunteers already SO this is your last time to be with the chldren this year.  So hope you come!
 
Come this Saturday?

We will need 30 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 is more than enough. Seeing people who care is enough.

Please join us on:

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!
