The Tutor Project

The Hispanic Center Tutor Project is a volunteer program where willing SUU students commit to tutor a minimum of three hours per week at elementary, middle, and high schools in Iron County in reading, writing, and other subjects. Tutors can also assist with the Iron County Adult Education Program, where adult learners participate in English as a second language program.

Elementary, middle, and high school hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Iron County Adult Education hours are Monday through Thursday from 6:00 to 4:00 p.m. Please make sure you are able to tutor during those hours.

All student volunteers are eligible to earn one SUU credit, available through HSS 2120. The requirement for one SUU credit hour, includes volunteering for a minimum of three hours per week of tutoring and the completion of a 'Reflection' questionnaire at the end of the semester.

Once you sign up, to tutor, the following process ensues:

  • The Hispanic Center contacts the tutor to attend an orientation session and complete required documentation.
  • The Hispanic Center provides Iron County school teachers with a list of available tutors.
  • The Hispanic Center monitors, contacts, and support tutors and school teachers throughout the semester.
