The Tutorias Program is one of the most rewarding and important programs Niños de Guatemala has to offer.

Volunteers are matched with students who have a learning delay or difficulty or who need extra support in their education. Ideally, you will meet with your child several times a week to work on personalized material given by the Academic Coordinator and will help the child to grasp concepts from class that they need extra assistance with.

 

In general, we ask that volunteers interested in this position to have a background in working with children with special needs or teaching in general, and have and advanced level of Spanish.
