Tutor in the Seattle community and take Education seminars with the UW Pipeline Project!

The UW Pipeline Project recruits, trains and places UW students as volunteer tutors in Seattle schools and community organizations. We are recruiting tutors for Winter quarter to work with about 40 different schools, and would love to have you! We’ll help you get set up tutoring in a K-12 classroom or community organization. Tutors make a minimum commitment of 2-3 hours per week for at least one quarter.

The schedule is flexible: schools need tutors Mon-Fri between 7:30 and 5pm. And we offer transportation to some of our partner schools that have the highest need for tutors.

Participate in a weekly Pipeline seminar and tutor for at least 2.5 hours a week at a Seattle school or community organization! All of our courses are Credit/No Credit, are I & S credits, and are listed under EDUC 401. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.

Seminars include:

EDUC 401M: Tutoring Math and Science in K-12 | Mondays from 4:30-5:50pm

EDUC 401I: Teaching English Language Learners | Tuesdays from 10:30-11:50am

EDUC 401L: Challenges and Opportunities in K-12 Education | Wednesdays from 5:00-6:20pm
