Homies is a homework club providing one-on-one tutoring & mentoring for Primary School aged children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. It aims to improve educational outcomes through learning assistance, provide supportive role models in its tutors, and create a positive social environment with other children. Homies is based in South Melbourne and runs on Thursday evenings during school terms.
As a Homies tutor & mentor you will:
- Be confident in helping Primary School aged children with their homework, especially reading, writing and maths.
- Work with the same child each week, in order to develop an effective tutoring relationship.
- Be available Thursdays 6pm - 7.30pm during school terms (or notify the co-ordinator when you are unavailable.)
- Be invited to contribute to the strategic development of the program.
Homies is supported by the City of Port Phillip.
