ACPS Seeks Tutors for the AVID Program during 2012-13 School Year
Can you help make college a dream come true for our Alexandria students? Are you a college-age student or community member seeking a tutoring experience in your local community? The ACPS Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program is in search of individuals willing to work 15-20 hours in a secondary school during the school year.
AVID tutors will be required to assist students in their learning by facilitating content-related tutorial groups using a Socratic methodology. They also will have the opportunity to collaborate with middle school and/or high school faculty and other tutors to support and build the AVID program through college- and career-related field trips and motivational experiences.
Currently, ACPS is beginning its fourth year of AVID and will graduate the first AVID class in 2013! For more information on the AVID Tutor position, go to http://www.acps.k12.va.us/hr/recruit/ and click on "Vacancies" and under Job Categories choose "Support Staff" and then "Tutors."
