TUTORS FOR THE ADVANCEMENT VIA INDIVIDUAL DETERMINATION (AVID) PROGRAM POSITION SUMMARY:

Goals: AVID tutors will guide students toward academic and personal excellence that will reach far beyond their secondary school years. AVID tutors will be active participants in the learning, growth, and personal development of students with the goal of preparing students to successfully attend college.

About AVID: Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is an educational  program that supports student preparation for college through an academic elective course that teaches necessary learning skills, reinforces the academic core, and encourages rigorous student course taking.

General Duties: AVID tutors will support middle school and high school students enrolled in the AVID elective course by providing direct instructional support to students with the assistance of an AVID elective course teacher. In addition, they will serve as role models to students.  Tutors will work from 2 to 16 hours per week, spread out over 2 days per week.  Tutors will work from Oct through May.  AVID tutors are critically essential to student success in the AVID elective course and beyond!

As a tutor, you are making a commitment to:

  • Facilitate tutorial sessions that use the principle of collaborative learning and the practice of students teaching other students through discussion of class and text notes.
  • Determine from student tutorial worksheets, notes, and discussions the concepts that need to be the focus of tutorial sessions.
  • Allow students to shoulder the responsibility for their own active learning while guiding them with strategies that they will become accustomed to using independently.
  • Reinforce the idea that learning extends far beyond mere studying to form the basis for long term accomplishments.
  • Assist students in any subject area, by being familiar with students’ textbooks and materials and AVID classroom resources.
  • Assist in teaching study skills and other aspects of college preparation.
  • Take responsibility for the tone and atmosphere of the AVID classroom.
  • Acknowledge the individuality of all AVID students and work to develop their academic and personal pride.
  • Communicate regularly with the AVID coordinator/teacher regarding student progress and areas of concern and confer with the teacher about future tutorial plans.
  • Establish and maintain a positive rapport with students.
  • Facilitate student learning in a challenging, yet supportive, tutoring environment.
  • Set an example of personal excellence and high expectations for AVID students to follow.
