The City Tutors (CT) provides in-class academic support for a 9th grade algebra class (a total of little more than 30 students) at Community Health Academy High School (located a block away from the 157th stop on the 1 train). The teacher has really enjoyed working with City Tutors, and we would like to continue to support her course in Spring 2016. The tutor would attend the class on Weds from 1:56-2:48PM.

This is a great opportunity for individuals who have a strong foundation in the material, and are interested in gaining practical experience working in the classroom.

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 commit three hours for the week. 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 will speak with the instructor weekly to prep for the next class and debrief after the Wed session.

You would identify and support students who are struggling 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. Your work with us would help the students’ overall subject area performance, and help us improve this educational support model at the site.

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 received a degree recently.
  3. Be willing to complete 11.5 hours of College Reading and Learning Aligned (CRLA) training at City College of New York.

The group training and orientation schedule is as follows:

Thurs, March 3rd 12-2PM (orientation)

Thurs, March 17th 12-2PM (1st training)

Thurs, March 24th 12-2PM (2nd training)

Thurs, April 7th 12-2PM (3rd training)
