Join The SOWMA Tutoring Team

Become a tutor and help a child achieve success in the classroom and beyond!
School on Wheels of Massachusetts trains community volunteers for one-on-one tutoring with students in kindergarten through grade 12 who are impacted by homelessness.

To provide stability, the tutor meets with the same child each week to reinforce grade-level learning skills, work on school projects, and help boost the child’s self esteem.

Tutors serve as mentors and positive adult role models for their students to help them realize their full potential.

In order to ensure that our volunteers are prepared when they begin tutoring, we have expanded the SOWMA Tutor Training. New volunteers must first take a two-hour Orientation which will familiarize them with School on Wheels and family homelessness in Massachusetts. After that, volunteers must take a three-hour Resource Workshop, which is a hands-on and interactive workshop that will familiarize them them with the learning resources at our sites, and give them strategies for having an effective tutoring session.
Volunteers who trained before August 2012 will be required to take the Resource Workshop before they begin tutoring.

We would love you to join the SOWMA tutoring team! For more information, please visit our website.
