Opportunities are also available for those wishing to work with Spanish-speaking students. We offer training in various teaching methods and motivational techniques throughout the year, and each child is provided with individual learning goals and a lesson plan by a licensed teacher.

Key Qualifications:

1. Must possess strong reading and writing skills in English and/or Spanish

2. Must be able to tutor for 1.5 hours at least one evening a week (M-Th,2-8 pm). A 3-9 month commitment is expected.

3. Must be able to spend a brief amount of time preparing before each tutoring session.
