The Education Program sponsors a tutoring program in the local area schools. Sewanee students are paid to tutor English, reading, math, and science during the school day (8:00-3:00) in the Franklin County elementary and middle schools. Students tutor small groups of 3-5 at risk students. The Sewanee Tutoring Program began in the year 2000, with a donation from a local area veterinarian and six Sewanee students tutoring science at Decherd Elementary School. At the present time, the Sewanee Tutors serve three schools in the Franklin County School System. Principals and teachers from participating schools are pleased with the progress of their students, and request that the Sewanee Tutors return each new school year. Tutoring is a great way to contribute to the educational needs of at risk students in local schools, and provides opportunities for Sewanee students to make a difference in the life of a child.
Students interested in becoming a Sewanee Tutor should contact the Coordinator of Education, Nancy Daniel. firstname.lastname@example.org
Work-Study students are also encouraged to consider Sewanee Tutoring for their Work-Study assignments.
