About

The City Tutors (CT) is looking for volunteer tutors to provide academic support to Harlem RBI's after school program. You would be supporting middle school students with their homework during their study group hours, once a week, any day between Monday-Thursday from 4PM-6PM, or twice a week from 4-5PM or 5-6PM. As a tutor, you will have the chance to work with a small group and collaborate with the site coordinator to improve the program as a whole.

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.

All tutors are also expected to complete a four session comprehensive, professional training regimen. 6 hours of live training, plus another hour and a half for orientation. This is a commitment of 7.5 hours of in person training, and 4 hours of supplemental training for a total of 11.5 hours of training over the course of the Fall semester.

The group training and orientation schedule is as follows:

Thurs, August 25 th, 9am-4pm(orientation, 1 st training, and 2 nd training)

Thurs, November 3d, 12-2pm (3rd training)

Thurs, November 17rg, 12-2pm (4th training)


We can accommodate your schedule if you cannot make the group trainings.

CT's 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 tutors in these sessions 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.
