Illinois Tutoring Initiative - Creating a Pool of Tutors (Extra Help) Division Name: Academic Affairs Department: Illinois Tutoring Initiative

at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois, United States

Job Description

High impact tutoring is effective at helping increase school outcomes for K-12 students. After a long period of online schooling, some kids in Central Illinois could really use your help and support. The Illinois Tutoring Initiative will assist tutors and their K-12 students through strong training for tutors, available resources and materials, and direct connections to district curriculum. Areas for tutoring include 3-8 reading and 3-8 math. The initiative is serving 3,000 students across the state of Illinois. Join the pool of tutors and we will get you matched with a student when available.

Tutors from across the state will tutor PK-12 students either individually or in small group of 1-3 students in Illinois. Tutors may be matched with PK-12 students by proximity, content area and age-level. Tutoring may occur face-to-face or online. Tutoring format (whether face-to-face or via online) will be up to the district and could switch during any semester (as districts open and close access to buildings based on a variety of factors). Tutors will work consistently with the same student(s) for the period of one semester for 3 hour-long sessions per week. Tutors will also have 1.5 hours of planning time per week to prepare for tutoring sessions.
