We facilitate individual and small group tutoring designed for students who may benefit from additional support within the school setting. The philosophy of this program is one which focuses on the school as a community of learners. Therefore, those students who receive tutoring not only receive support to reach their learning potential, but also benefit from the expertise, wisdom and passion of others.
Parents, staff, students and other volunteers from our community are accepted as well as volunteers from outside. Volunteers conduct one or a maximum of two sessions per week of 40-60 minute duration. Session time is flexible and dependent upon the needs and age of the student. Classroom and content area teachers refer students for tutoring support based on individual student needs or the recommendation of the Student Study Team (SST). Tutoring instructional plans are made between the tutors and referring teachers designed to support classroom instruction.
Tutoring may include, but are not limited to the following supports:
- classroom work
- review of basic skills
- increase language acquisition
- organization and study skills
- extension of talent or special interest
- projects and long term assignments
- communication and social skills
- building self-confidence and self-advocacy skills
Language teachers may also benefit from volunteers in the language classrooms to help support students who are acquiring an additional language. Proficient speakers of German, French, Danish and Spanish are welcome to volunteer in language classrooms.
Pursuant to the Copenhagen International School Child Protection Policy, all tutors working with the students must complete a thorough background and reference check. Tutors must also have a valid Danish work and residence permit to volunteer.
If you are interested in volunteering to work with Copenhagen International School students, please contact Cindie Juul-Larsen at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about the application process.
