Our after-school educational program seeks talented, accountable, experienced Tutors in all subject areas for students between grades K and 12. We help both struggling and gifted students reach their full potential by supplementing the instruction they receive in class and guiding them toward study practices and aides that can help them excel. Tutors work with individual students one-on-one, though we occasionally organize group activities for students who are studying the same material. Our team offers compassionate, motivating assistance to students, and we expect our new hires to do the same. If you have experience tutoring children, please submit an application.  Looking for tutors available through June 1st.  Tutors must have their own vehicles.
