Mid-Wilshire : Jewish Tutors Sought

The Bureau of Jewish Education is seeking trained tutors to help the children of Soviet Jewish immigrants with their schoolwork.

According to a spokesperson for the bureau, more than 1,700 Soviet Jews settled in Los Angeles in 1989, and 3,000 more are expected this year. The immigrant parents do not usually speak English, and their children typically need help with both their English- and Hebrew-language studies.

The bureau, at 6505 Wilshire Blvd., is the educational arm of the Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles. It provides services to 25,000 students in Jewish schools and educational programs.

Only skilled tutors are sought because no training is available.

Children to be tutored range in age from 5 to 18.

For more information, call Esther Krisman at (213) 852-7702.
