Help maintain good order in the classroom
Provide discipline and structure necessary to create positive study habits
Prepare educational and recreational activities for children after finishing their homework
Accompany the children to the library for freetime


In this program you will spend time each day with the same group of children, giving you the chance to build relationships with them, get to know them, and make a difference to their motivation and enthusiasm for their studies.
