CCACH is looking to hire tutors for the 2017/18 school year. These are part-time positions to help Edmonton’s youth excel in their studies, across age groups and academic subjects. While support in math, science, biology and physics are in high demand, tutors may also be expected to help students with social studies, English and/or other subjects based on student needs.
The full job description is below.
CCACH Tutoring Program Tutor
CCACH has been living out its educational mandate for more than 20 years with its CCACH Tutoring Program. CCACH offers one-on-one academic tutoring for students grades 1-12 to help them with course material they are having trouble with, or to help them advance in the upcoming school curriculum.
In addition to strengthening academic skills, improving marks and test scores, the CCACH Tutoring Program also helps increase confidence in school and connect with a mentor who understands being a student of African or Caribbean descent.
- CCACH tutors will be asked to commit four (4) hours every Saturday, from 10AM to 1PM during the academic year (September 2017 to June 2018). Holiday weekends are usually excluded.
- Tutors will help students on a one to one (1:1) basis for one hour each. Each tutor will therefore have a maximum of four students to tutor every Saturday.
- Tutors will also be expected to support CCACH and AfroQuiz community activities in a variety of ways.
- Tutors will help students primarily in English. French language capability is in demand but not mandatory.
- Tutors will be subject to a background check.
- Compensation is commensurate with experience and skillset.
- Tutors of a shared experience are preferred.
Tutoring takes place at the CCACH office (Lower Level, 10275 Jasper Ave NW).
Interested applicants can submit a letter of interest with a resume to Evelyn at info (@) ccach (dot) org. Tutors are hired throughout the academic year, as needed.
