职位描述

Our approach focuses on:

Transforming students—Students receive personalized instruction in groups of two from professional Tutoring Fellows, for one class period every day for an entire school year. In addition to academic instruction, our tutors mentor students on the behaviors, skills, attitudes, and strategies that are critical to academic achievement.

Transforming families—By providing regular communication to parents about their student’s progress, we transform families by bringing parents back into their child’s educational journey.

Transforming education—Our tutors provide critical support to teachers on the front lines of urban education by delivering intensive tutoring to their worst-performing students.

Transforming our Tutoring Fellows—In the process of helping transform the lives of 14 students each year, their own lives are immeasurably changed and enriched. 

SAGA FELLOW (CHICAGO)
We have Fellowship positions available in Chicago during the 2017-2018 school year. If accepted, you will start mid-August and serve until the last day of school in June 2018. This work builds off of a randomized clinical research study by the University of Chicago, which was published by the National Bureau of Economic Research in 2013 and 2014, where students gained up to 2.5+ years of math growth in one year of high dosage math tutoring. This research shows that it is possible to make a difference in the academic trajectory of students in high need urban communities—it is not too late.

SAGA FELLOW (NEW YORK CITY)
We have Fellowship positions available in New York City during the 2017-2018 school year. If accepted, you will start mid-August and serve until the last day of school in June 2018. This work builds off of a randomized clinical research study by the University of Chicago, which was published by the National Bureau of Economic Research in 2013 and 2014, where students gained up to 2.5+ years of math growth in one year of high dosage math tutoring. This research shows that it is possible to make a difference in the academic trajectory of students in high-need urban communities—it is not too late.

Responsibilities:

  • Fellows guarantee the academic success of students by focusing intently on individualizing instruction and building personal and meaningful relationships with their students.
  • Each Fellow will work with an average of two students at a time for each period of the school day and will have a personal caseload of up to 14 students they will work with every day.
  • Fellows contact families frequently about student progress. This communication forges trust creates relationships and keeps parents aware of the successes and needs of their children.
  • Every site has a coordinator who is responsible for observing, training and assisting Fellows through the entire year. Fellows will be observed daily and must be hungry for feedback.
Qualifications:

Passion for education reform and hunger for feedback.
Bachelor’s degree required (ALL majors accepted; an education major or minor is NOT required).
Strong basic high school math skills.
Prior paid or volunteer experience with students is helpful.
Prior coaching, tutoring or teaching experience is helpful.
Peace Corps and other National Service alumni are encouraged to apply; those who are looking for a meaningful gap-year opportunity or those who are looking for a ramp-up opportunity into education.
