The English tutoring program at Nottingham High School seeks to improve social literacy by providing academic tutoring and mentorship to “English as a Second Language” students.  Tutors will help Nottingham High School students from all over the world, and with a variety of backgrounds.  Honors Alumnus, John Cardone ’11, started the program in Fall 2010. 

The program runs Mondays-Thursdays from 2:30-3:15 pm.  Tutors can select the day, or days, that work with their schedule. Transportation will be provided.

Interested students are encouraged to attend a general interest meeting on Friday, January 18th at 3pm in the Honors library. If you cannot attend, please contact either Tom Green at tbgreen@syr.edu, or Zach Zeliff at ztzeliff@syr.edu.

Here’s what some previous volunteers have to say:

“It is a joy to work with students who are so committed to their education. These students face the most difficult obstacles, come from the harshest of circumstances, but are still some of the hardest working students you will find. I always leave feeling rewarded.” –Zach Zeliff  

“This program is a great way to engage with our local community, while making a significant difference in students’ lives. I am always amazed by their work ethic.” –Tom Green
