What is expected of me as a Learn To Be tutor?
All of our tutors are volunteers and consist of high school students, college students, professionals, and retired professionals. You are not expected to have direct experience teaching or tutoring, but you should be passionate about educational equity and making a difference in the larger community.
Our tutors are expected to commit to 60-90 minute lessons 1x per week with 1 student for at least 6 months, although most tutors stay longer! You are able to tutor more frequently or less frequently if that is the schedule you have created with your family. Tutors are not expected to create professional and elaborate lesson plans, but if your student doesn’t have homework assignments or test prep, we expect tutors to put in the work and research ways to help their student. We expect tutors to be flexible, open-minded, patient, and empathetic.
