We hire the majority of our tutors in September before the start of the Fall Quarter, however we accept applications at any time throughout the year. We seek both undergraduate or graduate students with a minimum overall GPA of 2.75 who are able to teach either math or English, and have mornings free to work at various middle schools. We will attempt to place you at a middle school near your home. Most tutors work approximately 14-20 hours per week, and typically tutor in the morning from 8 a.m. to noon.

As with any other career that deals extensively in interacting with people, we want tutors who communicate clearly, are patient with our students, and who demonstrate a willingness to teach others. Our tutors are of ALL majors and ethnicities, which helps to serve our diverse student population. In addition, many of our tutors have obtained teaching positions at the very schools they once tutored at.
