About

We are looking for a writing tutor to support a Writing for Social Science course. You would attend class once a week (either MoWe 12:30PM - 1:45PM). 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.

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.
