Description

Requirements for Tutors

Tutors develop one-on-one relationships, which makes this volunteer experience such a rewarding and worthwhile effort. STAIR has an excellent, user-friendly curriculum that makes it easy for volunteers to follow with no outside prep time and no prior educational experience.


1. Commit to tutoring one or two days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) between the hours of 3:15-4:45PM from September through April.

*Exception: Substitute tutors are called when needed to fill in for weekly tutors.

**Students: Please think through your sports and seasonal commitments and consider whether you can fully commit to your tutoring responsibilities.


2. You must be a freshman in high school or older to volunteer with STAIR. We request that a parent/guardian of high school students accompany their student to new tutor orientation and sign up to be a substitute for their child when they are absent from their tutoring responsibilities.


3. Attend an orientation.


4. Pass a background check.
