Job Description:

Legal Outreach is on the lookout for ten talented, knowledgeable SAT tutors who want to be part of a transformative experience that empowers youth from underserved populations. In past years, our Summer SAT course has shown an average score increase of 307 points, with some students scoring over 500 points higher on their final exam. Results like that can make all the difference in the world when it comes time to apply to college.

We will be hiring five Math and five English/Reading tutors for an intensive summer session designed to prepare high school juniors for entrance into top 50 colleges and universities. Despite the "tutor" job title, these instructors will be working with classrooms, not individuals. Each tutor will deliver a five-week curriculum of SAT material to a class of 10-12 students. Tutors will work in Math – Reading/Writing teams to co-teach a classroom. For example, the Reading/Writing tutor may teach in the morning while the Math tutor lesson plans and helps manage the classroom. Tutors will also observe separate workshops taught by test prep professionals to the same students, taking care to complement the lessons when planning their own. They will work from a developed curriculum while expanding exercises for their own students as needed. Orientation and training will be provided prior to start of the course, and tutors will work closely with permanent Legal Outreach staff who oversee the program.

This is the perfect position for college students, alumni, and graduate students who excelled on the SAT or ACT and are interested in gaining valuable teaching and leadership experience while making a measurable difference in students' lives over the summer.
