    Basic Math Tutors Needed
    Albuquerque, NM

    Manzano High School is beginning a repetitious math 101 tutoring program for students who are struggling to pass math classes.

    This year, many Freshman students are entering high school without the skills necessary to begin high school level math. The tutoring program would provide very basic, beginners level math tutoring.

    There is space available here at the high school for tutoring sessions that will take place throughout the day. Materials will be available and all volunteers will be prepared/mentored before hand.

    We are trying to provide support to our incoming Freshman as soon as possible. If you are interested in basic math tutoring, please call:
