> The NOVA Project, an alternative high school in the Seattle Public
> School system, is looking for a few volunteer math tutors to hang
> out with the kids for a couple of hours each week. It's very
> informal -- the students have a "math lounge" during certain hours
> of the week where they can go and work on homework, and they're
> looking for someone to be there to answer questions and offer
> explanations. It's an unusual and interesting group of kids,
> including many who are bright and highly motivated, and they're
> expected to take a lot of responsibility for their own learning.
> This might be a good opportunity to get some experience working one-
> on-one with high school students. We'll start scheduling hours
> right after winter break.
> Nova is in the Meany Middle School building, 301 21st Ave E -- a
> straight shot on the 43 or 48 bus.
> If you're interested, contact Jack Lee, lee at math.washington.edu.
