About

The City Tutors (CT) provides academic support for College Now students in Physics. We are currently looking for two embedded tutors for two sections (one tutor for each section) of this course.

One section meets from 9:00 AM to 12:40 PM on Saturdays; and the other section meets from 3:30 PM to 5:10 PM on Tuesdays and Fridays during the Spring semester.

This is a great opportunity for students who are majoring (or have already earned a degree) in the course area and are interested in enhancing their content knowledge through tutoring, and/or are interested in exploring their subject area at the cross section of education.

As an embedded tutor, you will collaborate with an instructor to improve students’ performance, while being supported and guided by an experienced academic support professional.

All embedded tutors for the College Now classes are expected to commit to three hours per class session. You will sit in on the class, and sometimes provide tutoring support after class (or on a different day if that's more agreeable) depending on students’ availability and interest.

You would identify and support students who are struggling, participate during the lecture to augment the class topic discussions, and provide feedback to the instructor regarding students' concerns and difficulties that can lead to changes in future lessons. You might also design assignments, identify/track students who are struggling and create differentiated instruction as the need arises.

CT's embedded tutoring program has been successful in helping students gain access to support that they otherwise would not have received, given their limited time spent on campus. Having a tutor in the class early in the semester will allow us to employ strategies to reduce withdrawals and student failure rates. Your work with us would help the students’ overall subject area performance, and help us improve this educational support model, reaching more students and departments with comprehensive academic support..

To apply, you must:

  1. Have received an A- or A in the introduction to the subject course you are applying to tutor
  2. Have a GPA at or above 3.2, or have completed a degree in physics or other related sciences
  3. Submit biweekly reports, and meet through Google Hangout/in person with the director on a biweekly basis.
  4. Be willing to complete 11.5 hours of College Reading and Learning Aligned (CRLA) training.

Training days will be determined based on your schedule and that of the Tutor Training Coordinators.
