Earn extra income this summer AND help International House provide English tutoring to immigrant children! We are seeking college and graduate students to serve as tutors in our summer Youth English Tutoring Program (YETP). Tutors will work with elementary school children who need help with their English speaking, writing, reading, listening and comprehension skills. A stipend of $1,400 will be paid to tutors who sign up for the six-week session.
This year, YETP is a six-week long session: June 18th- July 27th. Tutors will work with small groups of 3 to 5 children and will receive training and supervision through an on-site coordinator. Tutors will work from 8am-4pm on Mondays � Thursdays with Fridays spent at International House for group planning and evaluation. Morning tutoring sessions will be held at Merry Oaks International Academy Elementary and afternoon sessions at Albemarle Road Elementary, so tutors must have their own reliable transportation.
Potential tutors will be contacted to schedule an interview and all hired tutors are expected to attend orientation at International House. This position requires candidates to work with children ages 5-11, therefore a strong interest in working with elementary school aged children is essential. Finally, tutors will receive a stipend for the six week session.
