Job Description

What is an AVID Tutor? 

Tutors are essential to the success of the AVID elective class, where they facilitate student access to rigorous curriculum. As students from colleges and universities, tutors receive formal training and also serve as role models to the high school students. AVID students who continue their education in college often return to the program as tutors.

AVID Tutoring Works!

History records that Socrates was the "first tutor" because he taught by asking his students questions. He refused to make authoritative statements, encouraging his students to discover truths through their own thinking processes. Socrates was also reputed to be adaptable and good humored - qualities all good AVID tutors possess.

Qualifications: Successful college students with strong English, math or science skills are especially welcome.
