We are looking for a writing tutor to support a Writing for Social Science course. You would attend class once a week (class time to be determined). This is a 3-5 hour weekly commitment.

  • you would work with groups of students on their writing, meet with students one-on-one when needed
  • you would do in-class presentations about writing topics tailored around the content students are working on, and for those topics that can't be accommodated in class, you would create videos that students can watch ( Khan Academy style--about 2-4 mins in length using Google Hangouts on Air). You would also create a quiz that would go with that video. We'd be able to track analytics and see how students are performing.

About Us: CT is the Colin Powell School’s volunteer tutoring program, and a community organization that provides volunteer tutoring support to programs across Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. We work with afterschool enrichment programs, housing projects, high schools, adult education programs, and a nano-tech lab. As a tutor, you can work with students between 5-60 years old.

No formal tutoring experience necessary. We provide flexible training (days, evenings, weekends; in-person and virtual).

As a City Tutor, you can be connected to a mentor from an industry you are interested in who can help you with the job search, with drafting professional documents, and preparing for your next career steps.

Mission Statement

The City Tutors mission is to use tutoring as a means to increase community engagement and cultivate community members' professional growth.

Description

We are the tutoring program for CCNY's Colin Powell School and a community organization that serves programs across 4 of the 5 boroughs. Currently we provide in-class tutors to support adult education programs at 5 CUNY schools, including CCNY, BMCC, LaGuardia, City Tech, and Hostos (and its extension campus, CUNY in the Heights). We are also partnered with five non-profits that provide high school equivalency support to the populations they serve: Childrens Aid Society, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corp, Henry Street Settlement, Goddard Riverside Community Center, and (through the Department of Youth and Community Development) Moshulu Montefiore Community Center. Outside of adult education, we work with housing projects, high schools, and a nano-tech lab. For most of our opportunities, we put tutors in classrooms where they are collaborating with an instructor to support students. We also do one-to-one and small group tutoring. We tailor the support to the needs of the site. We are a great place to tutor if you are in college, a working professional or a retired professional.
