Earn Units Tutoring Kids Remotely

Earn Units Tutoring Kids Remotely

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 remotely 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 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!).

Tutoring begins the week of Monday, February 22, 2021. Please contact Dr. Tim Randell (trandell@sandiego.edu) right away with the times/days of your availability (within the days/times of Monday thru Friday, 8am-5pm). You may also learn more about the program at our website: https://www.sandiego.edu/cas/english/affiliated-programs/southeast-san-diego-tutoring-program.php.
