The City Tutors (CT) is looking for volunteer tutors to provide academic support to Youth Action Youth Build. We are currently seeking tutors for math to support students 18-24 years old as they prepare for the TASC, the new high school equivalency exam.

You would work with a group of students for 3 hours per week between 9am to noon. (You can do this on one day.)

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 a local coordinator to improve students’ performance while being supported and guided by experienced academic support professionals.

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.
