We are recruiting tutors for our 2 programs, Noah's Table & LEAP, will provide tutoring in math, reading, english, social studies/history , college preparation (ACT/SAT) and personal finance. Tutors will work with students grades 1-12 in the Fairfield City Schools. Tutoring will be based on student need and teacher assessments.

  • Written and verbal communication skills
  • Basic school curriculum skills and knowledge
  • Knowledge of test preparation, subject knowledge and successful study methods
  • Ability to use educational software, calculators, and other learning tools
  • Time management skills
  • Problem-solving skills

Tutors keep students motivated and interested in the subjects that they teach, instilling a passion for knowledge and continued education. They help students finish their assignments and check their work. Tutors may specialize in one or several subjects. Tutors can offer essential assistance for students dealing with learning challenges or those hoping to get higher test scores.

Some other duties and responsibilities include (as needed):

  • Teaching notetaking, studying, planning, organization, research methods, and other effective learning skills
  • Helping students to set goals for themselves and motivating them to achieve those goals with praise and rewards
  • Creating, conducting, and grading realistic practice tests and providing feedback on student performance
  • Distributing informative study guides and other teaching materials
  • Keeping the area where they teach neat and organized
  • Your main responsibility is to help students learn, reviewing content with them, explaining how to solve problems and checking completed work. You may also be asked to help students develop study skills and organization techniques to help improve their academic performance. This may be done in a one-on-one or group setting. Tutors must keep progress reports on students for and share those reports with supervisors. In addition to the academic component, tutors serve as role models.

Schedule

  • Positions may require as much as 15 or 20 hours a week. All work will typically be completed on weekdays during the regular school year, usually between the hours of 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Occasional Saturday hours or daytime meetings may be required. As a tutor, you may work with the same student every day or work with a different student each day, depending on the needs of the students.
After-school tutors must possess a passion for helping students learn and have the knowledge and skills to help students find new ways to look at difficult skills and concepts. As a tutor, you must have patience, as many students you work with will have trouble understanding the content you are trying to help them with. You must also have a positive attitude and know ways to motivate students when they become frustrated by material they do not understand
