The Young Educated Scholars Tutoring Afterschool Program, better known as YES! Tutoring for its positive take on academic support services, is a University-based program housed within the Community Leadership Center, at Rutgers-Camden. It offers academic tutoring to students in grades 3-11. The Program works with LEAP Academy students as part of the school’s academic support strategy.
At YES!, we believe that qualified instructors are a critical force in student achievement; that parents are an essential component of their child’s educational process; and, that learning should be engaging and motivating for every student.
WHAT WE OFFER:
Since we believe that qualified instructors are a major factor in student achievement, we depend on the high motivation of our staff to help expose our students to rigorous development in Math and Language Arts; as well as how to engage with technology productively, so that the individual and small group interventions taking place in the classroom can facilitate the comprehension of the provided material.
Above all, we value rigor, commitment and experience. Individuals interested in working with us, should be aware that our top priority is the success of our students and, as such, we want to make sure that their instruction is one of the highest quality, as well as adapting it to the unique urban setting our community boasts.
For such purposes we are looking forward to receiving applications, until November 1st, 2015. The applications will be used to fill the current vacancies in the positions of tutors, and assistants, for Math & ELA to work within grades 3rd-11th. The same positions are available for those interested in tutoring in Science-related fields (e.g., Biology).
Qualifications and other requirements
The program will run from 4-6 pm (M-Th. session will run from 4:15-5:45) and 9am-12pm (Sat.).
***Staff with Assistant placements will be required to be at their assigned building at 3:45 pm, so that they can collaborate with the transition of minors to their classrooms.
