What does it mean to Tutor for School on Wheels? 

The tutor session is an important time for a child. Our students face circumstances laden with uncertainty and unpredictability. As a tutor, you provide a safe and predictable time for a child to focus on school work.  Family shelters see much turnover, and consistency on your part helps to build trust and confidence. 

Despite what may be a difficult period in the child's life, every week that you show up is a week that child receives a message that someone is engaged in their schoolwork. Tutoring often takes place within the child's temporary home, at a family shelter.  It's possible that at times it will be noisy, or there may be a lot of foot traffic through your learning space.  Your student may be tired, distracted, or apprehensive. The best you can offer this child is a constant, positive presence that assures him or her that you are there to support, educate, and promote his or her capabilities.
