The City Tutors (CT) is looking for an embedded tutor to provide academic support for College Now Sociology class students this fall. Classes meet once a week (Saturdays, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM).

This is a great opportunity for students who are majoring (or have already earned a degree) in the course area to enhance their knowledge and experience and who are interested in tutoring. In this role, you would collaborate with an instructor to improve students’ performance while being supported and guided by an experienced academic support professional.

The embedded tutor for this College Now class is expected to commit a minimum of four hours Saturdays per class session. 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. You will be supported throughout this process by the City Tutors staff.

All embedded tutors are also expected to complete a three session comprehensive professional training regimen. The training schedule is broken down as follows (NOTE: makeup training sessions are available if you cannot make these dates):

Wed. 8/24 - Full Day Orientation Thurs. 9/15, 12PM - 2PM - Training Thurs. 9/22, 12PM - 2PM -- Training

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.
