Payrate: $14.20 per hour

We are expecting almost all HWS Corps tutoring efforts with local students to be in-person for Spring 2023, but we cannot be 100 percent confident that there won’t be virtual components or that we won’t have to return to a virtual option. If we need to return to virtual, there will be different protocols and processes than when in-person, but the focus, as always, will be on offering meaningful literacy, academic, and mentoring support to local youth.
Applicants should keep in mind that this position will involve working in close proximity to children who may or may not be vaccinated. Therefore, all HWS Corps participants will be required to follow the safety policies of the school/program where they will be placed, which may include remaining fully masked while on the premises and/or being vaccinated.

· HWS Corps Tutors will be working under an HWS Corps Coordinator but much of the work will be one-on-one with local students, and Tutors must be prepared to educate and build relationships during these one-on-one tutoring sessions.
· HWS Corps Tutors are expected to attend virtual professional development opportunities over the semester to support and improve their academic tutoring and mentoring skills.
· HWS Corps Tutors need to enjoy supporting a child’s learning efforts.
· Tutors must be patient, helpful, and sensitive, especially in light of the challenges local students faced this past year.
