SPE-GCS High School Volunteer Mentoring Program



Interested in supporting your local high school in science, math and engineering? SPE-GCS has a program that will meet your aspirations!

Leader: Dick Murphy (SPE-GCS member, retired Marathon Oil Company engineer) – stancal@windstream.net - Contact him!

What Is This? Volunteer tutors work closely with the teachers in the classroom, helping to explain the concepts to the students and giving them more individual attention.

Focus: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Math, Engineering – mainly “on-level” classes, some AP

Where? All Fort Bend ISD, Katy ISD, Houston ISD, Spring Branch ISD, Cy Fair ISD, Conroe ISD, Alief ISD and Aldine ISD High Schools. You don’t have to be a resident of these school districts in order to volunteer there.

Requirement? Science, Engineering or Business degree

Commitment? One hour of one day per week or more for a semester; which weekday is flexible. A commitment of five hours/week ensures continuity of effort, and gains trust of teachers and students. If you are interested in additional information on this, please watch this video.

Please send the following information to Dick Murphy. Dick will arrange to meet with the volunteers to supply additional information about the program.
