MORRISTOWN, NJ - The community tutoring program sponsored by The Morris Educational Foundation (MEF) is looking for volunteers to tutor language arts and math to students in third through sixth grades.
The program, which is in its fifth year, provides one-to-one instruction to students in the Morris School District. Tutoring for the 2015-2016 year will take place at Frelinghuysen Middle School (FMS), Sussex Avenue School and Alexander Hamilton School.
Last year, more than 30 tutors worked with over 50 children, instructing them in the areas of reading and math.
“The tutors represent positive and successful role models who encourage our students to establish high expectations and meaningful goals for themselves" said Kelly Harte, Morris School District Director of Curriculum. "The support that they provide is invaluable in helping our students improve their academic skills, which translates into overall increased academic success.“
The MEF is now accepting applications for additional tutors. Those interested in applying to tutor language arts and/or math, should email the foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
