Any recommendations for summer online tutoring opportunities?
Hello! I am currently a rising junior and I don't have many volunteer hours yet because I've mostly been focused on academics and extracurriculars for the past two years. However, given that COVID-19 has forced everything to be canceled, I'm starting to look into summer volunteer opportunities. I would really like to start tutoring online, but I don't know where to start. Additionally, because it's already summer, I'm not sure if there are any opportunities still open. Could someone please give me some advice, and/or recommend an organization for me to look into?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
My recommendation is to just straight up google “online volunteer opportunities.” If you’re looking for something just to pass the time or gain hours then I recommend making some sort of a flyer advertising online tutoring, specify your grade level (age), what your GPA is or some other indicator of your academics, and the courses you will offer tutoring in. You’ll only get service hours if it is free, so you can put “free tutoring due to Covid 19” or something like that in the title. You can email it to parents you know or even your friends and ask them to spread the word. school is over or will end soon, you can market it as a pre-teach for the next school year to prep kids. Or if you are good at math/eng you can try to do some SAT or ACT tutoring, and If you’re good at science you can add ACT science. These are just some suggestions... as for more legit organizations I think the cutoff for most summer volunteer programs was a while ago but you can still look. Hope this helps!
mention you would probably do these sessions via zoom and you can send the kid a document/worksheet then use the “share screen” feature so you can see what they’re doing at the same time.
