The City Tutors (CT) is looking for volunteer tutors to provide academic support to Harlem RBI's after school program for the Fall semester of 2017. 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 Spring semester.

We can accommodate your schedule for the training sessions.

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.
