Tutors Needed – Childcan

Looking for a great volunteer and job-related experience?  The Childcan Volunteer Tutoring Program is looking for you to help tutor elementary school age cancer survivors.  These children often have learning gaps due to extended absences and/or treatment-related issues.  The tutoring program is offered at no cost to parents, who have typically undergone financial challenges during their child’s treatment.

We are looking for tutors in London for a student in grade 3 (math),  a grade 2 student who has missed a lot of school over the last 2 years, and a grade 6 student  returning to school part-time, in May with weakness in language.  We are looking for a tutor in Stratford for a gr. 6 student for help with communication skills.

Childcan can cover some additional expenses, such as mileage for driving or for extra support materials.  The volunteer  tutor needs to complete a Childcan volunteer application form and  become a Childcan volunteer.

Contact Jackie Kinder, program coordinator, for more details and an application form.   jackie@childcan.com  519 680 7182


Westminster Secondary School requires tutor for Grade 10 and Grade 12 English students. Please contact Ruth Inglis, Vice Principal, at 519-452-2900.


South Collegiate is looking for some scribe help. Exams start this Friday,Jan. 27, and then continuing on Monday,Jan. 30, Tuesday, Jan. 31st and Wednesday, Feb. 1. Exams begin at 8:30 a.m. and run until 10 although students in learning resource can take up to twice the time if need be.

Scribing for students simply means reading the exam questions to the student in a closed setting and writing down exactly what they say onto the exam paper.These students can legally take up to twice as long for an exam so we estimate that while they may be granted three hours, they will probably not take as long because of the scribing.

If you are not in class during these times and would considering helpling us, please call the school.

Boys and Girls Club MAP Program

Here at the Boys & Girls Club of London, we have the M.A.P. Program which all of you volunteer/tutor in. The program is also working to expand outside of the club, with our first potential partnership taking place at Northbrae Elementary School. This school is located near Adelaide St. and Kipps Lane which is very close to the Western Campus.

The program will have 2 components. The first component is during the lunch hour from 12 -1pm Monday-Friday. This opportunity would allow you to travel to the school and tutor children during their lunch hour. The second component is an after school homework program at Northbrae as well. This takes place Monday, Tuesday and Fridays from 3 – 4:30pm. This would act as an extension of the M.A.P. Program and would be similar to what takes place at the club here.

This is an opportunity for anyone who would like to volunteer more in the community (and is closer to Western Campus as well for anyone living near there) and would be in addition to your time here at the club tutoring with us. If you are interested in this please contact the following person:

Looking for a great volunteer and job-related experience as you undergo your teacher training?  The Childcan Volunteer Tutoring Program is looking for you to help tutor elementary school age cancer survivors.  These children often have learning gaps due to extended absences and/or treatment-related issues.

Childcan serves children and their families in southwestern Ontario who have been diagnosed and treated through the Children’s Hospital in London.  Right now there are children waiting for extra help in Norwich, Woodstock and London.  The tutoring program is offered at no cost to parents, who have typically undergone financial challenges during their child’s treatment.

The volunteer tutor will meet with the family to set up schedule of approximately 1 hour, once or twice a week, during the school year and perhaps over the summer.  Tutoring can take place in the child’s home or at a nearby library in an area which is distraction-free. The tutor can liaise with the classroom teacher and may obtain support materials from the school.

Childcan can cover some additional expenses, such as mileage for driving or for extra support materials.  The volunteer  tutor needs to complete a Childcan volunteer application form and  become a Childcan volunteer.
