Tutor FAQ

What are my responsibilites?

Depending on the tutor position you choose to fill, Your responsibility would be to teach a small class of students per subject you choose or grade, with the material agreed upon between tutor and Director. A 20 minute lesson from board and with manipulatives ,if needed, with a follow-up twenty minutes of helping students with their work.

What do you pay tutors?

Tutors are paid on a sliding scale, depending on the position they are hired for. 

Do I need to be available off school days to answer questions? Do we give tests and quizzes?

We have a center app we use to communicate with students, parents, and to send assignments. You will be asked to answer questions on the day you tutor, but not on the off days.

You are not required to give tests or quizzes during a weekly schedule. However, depending on the grade level, we do issue tests to keep track of students learning.. Quizzes are optional per tutor. 

What curriculum would I be using?

We will establish the curriculum of choice with each tutor per subject. If the tutor does not have preference, we will recommend a few choices. The parents will be required to purchase the books needed. The syllabus for the school year will be finalized between each tutor and the Director, September McCarthy before August 1st.

How many students would I have in any given class?

Class size ranges by grade. We can predict anywhere from 6-12 for per class.

What days and times would I be working?

All classes are Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30-12:30. Your working hours may only be a portion of this time or the whole morning, all depending on your class specifics and the schedule. If you teach an elective in the afternoons, after 1:00pm, you would be working at this time.

What grades are you looking for tutors?

We are looking for any/all grades tutors. We like to have a growing sub list and back up list incase a lead teacher needs to step away at any time. Each tutor can choose to rotate and teach more than one grad/age class, or choose the grade/age they are most comfortable with and teach only this. As the Center's enrollment grows and the tutor base expands, we will have multiple options.

If teaching only two days a week, are you looking for creative hands-on type math with manipulatives, or are you looking for like on the board style teaching with manipulatives used for kids who just aren’t getting it? Or is this partly the time for testing and quizzes?

All teaching and learning styles are different. We encourage a lesson from the board with hands-on learning manipulatives in the classroom for part of the class period for this learning style. We encourage the advantage of homeschool style learning in a classroom setting.

Am I responsible for correcting all the class work or homework? Or is this something the parents do?

The homeschool parent is expected to and required to grade and assign the work for their students at home.

Part of this "grading system," will be to collect the assignment after reviewing it on the board for collective corrections. This will enforce the concepts and build on the newest daily lesson. The student will grade their paper during review time and turn this paper in before leaving.
