  • Tutors assist site Supervisors by tutoring students from a variety of ages ranging as early as Kindergarten to High school seniors.
  • Tutors provide assistance in the following subjects: Math, English, Sciences, and Reading Comprehension.
  • Tutors must have reliable transportation, meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), demonstrate financial need, maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA or higher, and satisfy Federal background and drug screening.
