Tutors Needed! Please help!

The Berkeley High Bridge Program is looking for both adult and student 
volunteers who are interested in tutoring first generation college bound 
students in the 9th-12th grades. Students primarily need tutoring in 
basic math (Algebra 1, geometry and Algebra 2) and science (chemistry 
and biology) classes; however, if you are able to tutor in another 
subject, we can definitely use your help! It is important to note that 
volunteers do not have to be an expert in any subject area.

Bridge takes place after school every day from 3:30-5:30pm. Any time you 
are able to donate would be helpful! If you can't coach, please tell a 
friend or neighbor who might be interested. For more information, please 
email Jessie Luxford, the Bridge Coordinator, 
(jessieluxford at berkeley.net <mailto:jessieluxford at berkeley.net>).

Below is a brief description of the Bridge program at Berkeley High.

_The Bridge Program at Berkeley High_:

The Berkeley High Bridge Program delivers intensive, direct, 
school-based services to students and families of first-generation 
college candidates. The program combines highly personalized advising 
with school-based collaborative support for the daily and yearly 
academic pursuits of its students. Bridge provides the commitment of a 
creative and dedicated team of support teachers while demanding a 
significant investment of time, energy, and effort from students as they 
develop skills, competences, and the ability to navigate the often 
complex pathway to a college education.

Beginning with the summer session prior to their 9th grade year, and 
continuing with daily afternoon meetings, weekend study sessions, and 
regular tutorials throughout their four years at Berkeley High School, 
Bridge students often invest between 150 and 250 additional academic 
hours per year in their education.
