Job Description
Skills Required: AVID Tutor Description:

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a research based elective course that prepares students to be academically successful during middle school and high school and to meet the requirements necessary to attend a four year college after high school. Tutors will receive training in the Socratic method and AVID tutor methodologies.

We are looking for tutors who are competent and confident in working with students in all academic content areas: English (especially writing), Science (Biology, Chemistry & Physics), Social Science, Computer Skills, and Math (Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2/Trig, & Calculus). We are seeking tutors who are exceptionally strong in Math (Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2/Trig, & Calculus), which is the subject area students need the most support with (you may be asked to complete and explain how to complete a math problem in your interview).

Additionally, our tutors need to be able to keep a group of 7-8 students focused and on-task during the tutorial period. Tutors will be expected to periodically meet with the AVID teachers and discuss their progress as well as the progress of the students. Tutors must be able to take direction as well as keep track of ones own work schedule. Tutors must also be able to transport themselves to and from the school site they are assigned to. Please note in your application, which school site and schedule you are available to work.

Interviews will be held on September 24th or 25th. If selected for an interview, we will contact you by the end of the day on September 22nd. If hired, there is a mandatory 4 hour Tutor Training on Friday, October 3rd from noon to 4 pm.
