People from all backgrounds and many stages of life can apply to be a tutor – from recent high school or college grads to career changers to retirees. Applicants participate in a competitive selection process to serve with local schools and early learning centers.
Minimum Eligibility Requirements:
- Be at least 18 years of age (no upper age limit!)
- Have a high school diploma or GED
- Be a citizen, national, or lawful permanent resident alien of the U.S.
Tutors will receive comprehensive training before they begin service, so no prior teaching experience is necessary! Qualified applicants must have a desire to help students succeed, be dedicated and flexible, and have strong interpersonal skills to build and maintain quality working relationships with students and school staff.
We believe that all individuals who are qualified and want to serve their community should have the opportunity to do so. Our staff works with disability organizations, colleges and universities, and the community to spread the word and ensure that our programs are as inclusive as possible.
AmeriCorps is committed to the inclusion of qualified individuals without regard to race, color, national origin, disability, gender, sexual orientation, religion, political affiliation, or other non-merit factors.
