Tutoring Fellow - ExeceleRate Tutoring Corps

Position Title: Tutoring Fellow- Be the Difference!

Organization: ExeceleRate Tutoring Corps

Description and To Apply: What is ExceleRate Tutoring Corps?

ExceleRate Tutoring Corps is an innovative program designed to provide children daily small group, tutoring during the school day. ExceleRate tutors dedicate a year of their time to work with middle school students, or scholars as we prefer to call them. The tutors spend the day providing instruction, primarily in mathematics, to middle school scholars.

We have found that this targeted, small group instruction results in amazing gains among the scholars. In fact, we have seen scholars demonstrate as much as three years growth in one school year. ExceleRate is about unlocking the potential in all of our children.

What type of candidate should apply to ExceleRate Tutoring Corps?

There is no single definition for the model ExceleRate applicant. But, we can tell you that it is important that, as a candidate, you believe. You must believe that all children can succeed. You must believe that a child, no matter his or her background, can and will succeed. We believe that each child is a scholar and that each scholar is on his/her way to college. In fact, we refer to our scholars by the year that they will graduate–the year that they graduate from college. Our eighth grade scholars are the class of 2025 and our kindergarten scholars are the class of 2033!

Is this a “typical” tutoring program?

No! Throw away all of your preconceived notions of tutoring programs. This is tutoring on steroids. Tutors use comprehensive data to meet the needs of the scholars. Tutors meet with scholars daily. Tutors provide direct instruction; this is not homework assistance. An ExceleRate tutor has many responsibilities similar to that of a traditional teacher. An ExceleRate tutor takes ownership over the development of the scholars under his/her tutelage.

Is this a volunteer or paid position?

This is a paid position. At the same time, this is really a position of passion. We pay each ExceleRate tutor a living stipend similar to what programs such as AmeriCorps pay. Additionally, tutors receive free shared housing for the year as well as full insurance benefits at no cost to the tutor.

What type of time commitment is ExceleRate Tutoring Corps?

This is a year-long commitment. ExceleRate tutors will begin training in early August of 2017 and will work through June of 2018. Given the need to ensure consistency for our scholars it is imperative that tutors are committed to working full time for the entire academic year. On a daily basis, this is equivalent to a full time job. Tutors will be very busy not just with instruction during the day, but similar to teachers, tutors will need to work in the evenings and weekends to plan and practice instruction.
