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? The volunteer work is done during the school day in the high school classroom following the teacher's teaching methods.  Volunteer tutors are dedicated, proactive, and patient in helping explain the concepts to the students and giving them more individual attention. During the Covid-19 outbreak, all tutoring will be virtual,not in-class, and arranged with the teacher.

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

Where? Fort Bend ISD (5 high schools), Katy ISD (1 high school), Spring Branch (1 high school), Houston ISD (2 high schools), and Conroe ISD (1 high school).  You don’t have to be a resident of these school districts in order to volunteer there. 

Requirement? Science, Engineering or Business. Minimum B.S. Degree

Commitment? Three hours per week or more for a semester; which weekday is flexible. A commitment of three hours/week ensures continuity of effort, and gains trust of teachers and students. If you are currently employed full time, we can possibly work around this requirement.  If you are interested in additional information on this, contact Dick Murphy and 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.
