Earn Units Tutoring Kids: USD’s Southeast San Diego Tutoring Program

Thursday, January 23, 2020

If you currently have less than 18 units in your schedule, you can earn more units by registering to tutor local elementary and middle school kids in USD’s Southeast San Diego Tutoring Program (ENGL 292/492), sponsored by the English Department. By tutoring for only 3, 6, or 9 hours a week —for only 10 weeks over the semester—you can earn 1, 2, or 3 academic units. You decide the number of hours and the times during the week that fit your schedule. You will feel great making a difference in the lives of children who need your help. To participate, you need only tutor regularly and responsibly and write a one-page guided reflection on your experiences each week. In return, you gain: Academic units to speed you toward graduation Up to 3 COMPASS points (if you declare a major in the College of Arts and Sciences) Valuable knowledge and experience working with children Real-life work experience (put it on your resume!) to further your career Duties at the schools include tutoring children in basic reading, writing, and math (one-on-one or in small groups) and assisting teachers with daily classroom activities. All undergraduates, regardless of major, are welcome to register (tell a friend!). Tutors must provide their own transportation (car, bus, Zipcar, Über, Lyft), but all schools are within five to 12 miles from USD. Tutoring begins the week of Tuesday, Feb. 18 (the schools are closed that Monday to observe President’s Day) and ends on the last day of classes. For details and to start your registration, email Tim Randell ( right away (before Monday, Feb. 10) with the times/days of your availability Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Allow at least a half hour of travel time before and after your proposed tutoring times.)
