Tutor at an elementary, middle or high school in Seattle during Autumn  Quarter!

The UW Pipeline Project recruits, trains and places UW students as volunteer tutors in Seattle schools and community organizations. We are recruiting tutors for Autumn quarter to work with about 40 different schools, and would love to have you!

We’ll help you get set up tutoring in a K-12 classroom or community organization.  Tutors make a minimum commitment of 2-3 hours per week for at least one quarter. The schedule is flexible: schools need tutors Mon-Fri between 7:30 and 5pm. And we offer transportation to some of our partner schools that have the highest need for tutors.

 

Take an EDUC 401 Inner Pipeline Seminar Class for Credit:

Participate in a weekly Pipeline seminar and tutor for at least 2.5 hours a week at a Seattle school or community organization! All of our courses are Credit/No Credit, are I & S credits, and are listed under EDUC 401. The number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. 2 credits: weekly seminar and tutor 2-3 hours per week. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.
