Post-secondary students invited to be tutors
University or college students can tutor public school students in 2017.
"The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) invites applications for the Tutors in the Classroom program. This program allows students who are currently enrolled in Ontario colleges and universities to work in Simcoe County public elementary schools as tutors with a focus on literacy and numeracy. Applicants must be returning to full or part-time post-secondary studies in the fall.
Interviews and information training sessions for potential tutors will be conducted at the SCDSB Education Centre (1170 Hwy. 26 in Midhurst) on Feb. 21, 23 and 28 from 4 to 7 p.m. This process includes professional learning for candidates in numeracy. Students interested in becoming a tutor must pre-register for one of the evening sessions listed above by emailing Pauline Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org. A limited number of spaces are available. Principals will select tutors from those who have successfully completed recruitment criteria.
Tutors work up to a maximum of 75 paid hours by May 19, 2017. Schedules will be determined in consultation with SCDSB principals.
