New Schools for New Orleans (NSNO) is an education nonprofit whose mission is to provide excellent schools for every child in New Orleans. In our unique educational landscape, schools face significant challenges of equity in being able to provide additional teaching support to students who need it most. NSNO aims to address this critical need by creating The NOLA Tutor Collaborative. This program pairs university students with a small group (1 to 3) of students in our local schools to receive tutoring in math or reading twice a week for one hour a session.

What you do

Service Learners will tutor a small group (1 to 3) of 3rd/4th graders in reading or 6th/7th graders in math at a school site whose schedule fits with yours. 
You will also:
- Receive training on the tutoring curriculum and partner school systems before being in front of students. 
- Create a positive learning environment that fosters comfort and encouragement of students.
- Guide students through academic challenges by fostering critical thinking and discussion of content.
- Provide feedback and celebrate student successes while guiding improvement."

What you learn

  1. Make a Difference - Witness students' confidence and abilities transform
  2. Explore Teaching - Inspire young minds and consider the potential for a career in education
  3. Enhance Skills - Develop communication, leadership, and problem-solving skills
