  • Students: work with a variety of students at all grade levels on an individual or one-to-one basis. As you track students' daily progress, you will see a marked improvement in their skills, confidence, and motivation. There are no discipline problems, so you concentrate on academics. Since full-time staff conduct all parent discussions, you have no interaction with parents.

  • Year-round flexible hours: our after-school and summer hours adapt to your changing schedule. Since no preparation is needed beforehand, it's an ideal after-school job that's even better than tutoring on your own.

This opportunity offers experiences that are not available in the classroom.
