  • .Study Zone Library Tutor description

    CLICK THE "SIGN UP!" BUTTON TO THE RIGHT TO BEGIN YOUR ONLINE APPLICATION. If you already have an existing KCLS volunteer account please click "LOGIN!".


    Study Zone is a homework-assistance program for elementary through high school students. The program is offered as a free service to students in our libraries. Students can study, do homework and get help with their questions. Study Zone tutors provide help in all subject areas up to the 6th grade level and also specialize in one or two subjects up to the college-prep level. Each tutor works with 1-5 students in a group setting.
     

    WHO CAN BE A STUDY ZONE LIBRARY TUTOR? Most Study Zone tutors are professional and retired adults. Applicants who are still in high school should be at least 16 years old and a junior or senior, and will need to include a teacher or school representative on the application as an academic reference. Study Zone tutors must be able to pass a Washington State Patrol Background Check. We are unable to accept applicants with any form of assault, abuse or theft convictions for the Study Zone program. The volunteer commitment is two hours, one day per week for an academic semester (September-January, February-June or the July-August summer session).   Library Study Zone sessions take place during afternoon and evening hours (3-8pm), Sunday through Thursday.

    Study Zone substitutes fill in as needed for regular volunteers at one or more libraries. As a substitute tutor you have the option of declining a sub opportunity if you are not available or are already committed to another sub assignment.  Being a substitute tutor is a great option if your job has a rotating or variable schedule.

    Applications are accepted throughout the school year. The program is closed during all major holidays and school vacations.
