We hope you think about joining our team, but before you apply, please consider the following:

We seek a long-term commitment from our tutors; it is not just a stopping point until another position opens up. You will be working one-on-one with students and forming a close bond. It’s hard for them to switch to different tutors.

New tutors typically start with just one or two students, so your starting hours will be low (1.5 – 3 hr/week). More students will become available after 30 days of successful tutoring and you could eventually be working as many as 10-20 hr/week, if so desired. 

Tutoring is an extremely rewarding position. You build a strong relationship with your student(s), you watch them grow, build their confidence, and prepare them for future success. You are transforming lives and giving them the gift to be able to succeed in school and the workplace.
