ORGANIZATION: The City Tutors

  • 1 person is interested

The City Tutors (CT) is looking for working professionals to be online tutors to provide academic support for historically under-resourced communities that traditionally have not had access to tutoring support. For those professionals who can volunteer 3 hours per week for 6 months to support these populations, we recognize these volunteers as being part of our Community Angels collective of volunteers who graciously provide such sustained work over the course of the semester.

Volunteers can choose the subject you want to support, student population you want to work with, and time you want to be available.

All tutors are also expected to complete a three session comprehensive, professional training regimen. 3 hours of live training, plus another hour and a half for orientation. This is a commitment of 4.5 hours of live training, over the course of the semester.

Training days will be determined based on your schedule and that of the Tutor Trainer's.

To apply, you must:

  1. Complete an online background check
  2. Provide a letter of employment verification or a professional reference.
  3. Keep a log sheet of any tutoring appointments done using the online tutor portal

Organization Description:

The City Tutors is a no-cost NYC learning and career center for New Yorkers who have historically lacked access to individualized academic and professional development services, available at the time and pace they need

Mission Statement

The City Tutors (CT) is a NYC wide volunteer tutoring and mentoring hub that ensures historically underserved communities have equitable access to resources that are fundamental to educational and professional success.

Description

Our vision is to create a hub where any New Yorker can leverage their academic and professional skills and content knowledge to uplift their community and where disadvantaged communities can access resources that they need.

We see tutoring as a way to empower individuals to work in the community. We provide flexible times, convenient locations, and meaningful experiences, allowing more community members to participate and to support community partners for longer.

We believe tutoring must be a reflective act that both helps strengthen individuals' support of others and helps individuals better understand themselves. We provide our tutors with access to industry mentors who help connect the work they are doing with us with what they've done in the past and what they want to do in the future.

We believe in leveraging the workforce skills of our community of volunteers by pairing those in need of professional support with industry experts who can provide insight into specific fields and feedback on professional documents.

We see the City Tutors as an opportunity to bring people together under a common purpose. We want like-minded individuals to feel they are part of a fellowship, to build their network with people within their discipline, and to expand the disciplines and industries they've been exposed to.
