Tutor Job Description

As a tutor, you will tutor about 30 students one-on-one each week. For the most part you will be working independently in a library setting. You will have a tutor tool kit with all the supplies you will need for the summer. You will also have a referral sheet for each student that will tell you what each student needs to work on and other important information. You will be working in two to three libraries and therefore are required to travel.

You will be responsible to:

  • attend all orientation and training days
  • organize your own schedule and coordinating it with the libraries’ and parents’ schedules
  • meet with resource teachers from each of the schools your students attend
  • develop unique lesson plans for each student
  • report to your supervisor regularly
  • maintain a good relationship with the library staff
  • maintain good communication with parents about what you are working on with their children and how their child is doing
  • write final reports for each child at the end of the summer
  • submit timesheets and mileage sheets bi-weekly to your supervisor
