Pipeline Project Seminars for WIN20

Tutor at an elementary, middle or high school in Seattle during Winter Quarter 2020!

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 25 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.

Take an EDUC 401 Inner Pipeline Seminar Class for Credit!

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. The number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. 2 credits: weekly seminar and tutor 2-3 hours per week. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.

EDUC 401 I: English Language Learners Seminar 

Tuesdays | 11:00 AM – 12:20 PM

The number of English Language Learners (ELLs) has increased by over 50% in the last decade, with some states, like South Carolina and Indiana, experiencing extremely rapid growth of English Learner populations. With a growing number of English language learners in the US, it is important for educators to be more linguistically and culturally responsive. We will gain familiarity of ELL students while understanding sensitive issues and the obstacles ELL students have to experience in a K-12 educational system.
