Most tutors commit to serve 35, 25, or 18 hours per week. Students make the most progress when consistent help is available so we ask that all tutors commit to completing the school year. Daily start and end times may vary slightly by school or position, but in general your day will start at the beginning of the school day and will end no later than when school dismisses for the day.
We are currently recruiting for the 2019-2020 school year. There are opportunities to begin in August, September and October of 2019 or in January 2020. Learn more now — visit our application website.
