Why become a Tutor?

One of the best ways to learn something is to explain it to someone else! In addition it allows you to:

  • Help your peers understand concepts, clarify exam questions…
  • Gain teaching experience
  • Choose flexible working hours
  • Refine your knowledge of your strongest subject

Bishop’s University Mentoring and Tutoring Program – BUMT

Purpose is to promote literacy and learning within the local community by matching up Bishop’s students with school-aged kids in the area. Our mission is to help local children and teens to achieve academic success while strengthening Bishop’s involvement in the community.

BUMT aims to accomplish this by engaging and mobilizing volunteers to take action for the cause of literacy and learning. BUMT has one-on-one tutoring programs that run in connection with Sherbrooke Elementary School (SES) and Alexander Galt Regional High School as well as a reading circle at the Lennoxville Library in partnership with Lennoxville Elementary School (LES).
