  • Student homework: literacy and learning activities
  • Building relationships with students over the course of the semester
  • Lead some classroom activities and supervise play
  • Engage students in conversation, games and other free time activities
  • Serve as a role model, encourage good behavior and provide positive reinforcement for program participants
