As a Lakeland STARs tutor, you will work with 1st – 6th grade students from nearby Paint Branch Elementary School (PBES) to enrich their academic experience. You will be matched one-on-one with a PBES student and meet each week on a designated day (Wednesday or Thursday) throughout the semester.
Lakeland STARs has been part of the Scholars experience since February 1996. Tutoring with the Lakeland STARs program is a rewarding way for students to give back to the College Park community.
What are the expectations of a Lakeland STARs Tutor?
Tutors will meet on Zoom at 3:30 p.m. for important announcements and to prepare for the session. Once the children have logged on, you will work with them on homework and enrichment for a minimum of one hour and a maximum of 90 minutes.
Tutors should be prepared to commit the full 2 hours to STARS every week, which runs for 11 weeks for the Fall 2020 semester.
How is Lakeland STARs coordinated?
The program is coordinated through a partnership between the City of College Park Youth, Family, & Senior Services, Paint Branch Elementary School and the College Park Scholars program.
The City of College Park Youth, Family & Senior Services coordinates children's applications, funds the program and provides administrative support and transportation. Paint Branch Elementary identifies a Teacher Liaison for the program and teachers provide suggestions to the tutors for best practices in working with children. The College Park Scholars program recruits tutors, coordinates the day-to-day logistics of the program and provides facilities in which the tutoring and enrichment activities occur.
