Do you have a few extra hours to spare this term? Have you ever thought about tutoring? Here are some great opportunities:

English as a Second Language (ESL) Tutoring at Asheville High:
Tutors are needed to help out in the classroom M-F between 11:45-1:50. You do not need to speak another language or have had any previous experience.

Want to tutor Middle School kids?
Randolph Learning Center provides an alternative setting for at risk middle and high shcool students (grades 6-10) located in Asheville. If you are interested in tutoring either math, reading, social studies or another subject this is a fantastic opportunity.
