- Tutoring: help students in various academic subjects (especially science, math, and English) during school.

Coaching in various academic subjects
Please note: There is minimum commitment required for this site. 25 hours of service must be completed in a regular weekly schedule.
In-class: If available, you can be paired with a student/teacher in a classroom that matches your Service-Learning course (esp. algebra, geometry and reading).
Other opportunities for service are available
There are a number of special programs relating to STEM. Your classes can come up with fun, engaging activities to do with the Kaimuki students on their campus or on ours. Contact Candice Sakuda if you’re interested in developing these kinds of lessons.
In-class placements are available Monday through Thursday from 8 AM.
There is an after-school homework/tutoring program, one of two hours per shift:
- Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:25 PM
- Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:40 PM
Note: emphasis is placed on in-class placements because Kaimuki students may not regularly attend after-school sessions for help. You may inquire about their needs in any given term.
As arranged with point of contact.
