Your key responsibility as a Spanish tutor is to help students with Spanish homework in various subjects. The subject matter varies from math, to reading, writing, and speaking in Spanish.
The level of the subject matter you will be helping with is elementary-8th grade for most of our students. Student's enrolled in High School Spanish will have homework in reading and writing as well as working to increase their fluency.
We ask that you make a commitment of at least 1 day a week, we are open Monday-Friday with some weekend enrichment activities. Your commitment to the students is always noticed and always very much appreciated by them.
