As an Ignite Fellow, you’ll provide small group virtual tutoring to accelerate learning and foster belonging with elementary and middle school students. Under the guidance of a Trainer (a veteran educator), you’ll customize tutoring lessons to help students build academic skills, confidence, and a sense of pride in their learning. Working virtually alongside thousands of other Fellows, you’ll be a part of a movement to end educational inequity and ensure that all students have access to customized instruction that aligns to their passions, interests, and needs.

We are looking for individuals who are passionate about education and ensuring all students have access to an excellent education. You’re eager to grow and develop your skills as a tutor, driven by the growth your students are making, and a caring leader who makes sure all students feel seen and valued.

·        Tutor up to 2-4 students virtually during their school day 3-5 times a week consistently over the course of the semester, providing learning acceleration in elementary literacy, middle school math, or high school career advancement

·        Individualize tutoring sessions leveraging your school’s curriculum for elementary reading, middle school math learning or high school mentorship, with support from a school-based veteran educator

·        Foster belonging in your students through intentional relationship-building

·        Maintain a good working relationship with your trainer, a veteran educator who will support your tutoring practices, by consistently attending tutoring sessions and trainings as well as communicating proactively

A Week In The Life

During the average week as a fellow, you’ll spend about 5 hours preparing for and delivering your small group tutoring lessons. You’ll tutor the same group of 2-4 students at least 3 times a week, delivering lessons provided by your trainer that you customize to meet your students’ interests and needs. Your trainer may have observed your tutoring session and emailed you some feedback that you are implementing into your tutoring practice. You’re doing all of this having selected the tutoring time that works best for your schedule and allows you to show up prepared and eager for each tutoring session!
