The AVID Tutor

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. AVID students who continue their education in college often return to the program as tutors.

This is an excellent opportunity for college students looking to fulfill requirements for community service hours, a practicum or internship. The experiences garnered as an AVID tutor are non-traditional and will set you apart from the rest.

Extensive training is given to our tutors in order to ensure the use of the best educational practices and confident tutors. No expertise in any subject area is necessary; just the determination to help our AVID students become independent thinks and self-sufficient learners.

In addition to education majors, the AVID tutor position is open to anyone interested in giving back to the community by volunteering at a local school. Motivated individuals help to create a high-quality learning environment for students in need of extra academic support. These individuals can be retired people, college students with a major besides education, or any other adult wishing to make a positive impact on his or her community.
