Tutoring Programs 2018-2019
Adults enrolled in post-secondary programs at universities and colleges, qualified teachers, current KPR school staff, current teacher candidates or other adults with relevant, basic skills in the areas of literacy and numeracy, are eligible to apply for a tutoring position in one or both of the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board’s Tutors in the Classroom and/or OFIP Tutoring Programs. The majority of tutors will be hired in the Fall, but hiring will continue throughout the school year as positions become available.
TWO DIFFERENT TUTORING PROGRAMS (one delivered during the school day; one delivered after-school). You may apply to one or both of the Tutoring Programs.
a) TUTORS IN THE CLASSROOM TUTORING PROGRAM:
- in this program tutors work with individual or small groups of students in grades JK-3 during the school day with a focus on literacy and numeracy
- tutors in this program will develop a personal tutoring schedule with the school principal to meet the needs of the school and the availability of the tutor
- tutoring schedules thus, vary from tutor to tutor - for example some tutors may tutor a couple of hours per week, one or two hours per day or any other time arrangement on a day(s), during the week, that is mutually agreeable to the principal and the tutor
b) OFIP TUTORING PROGRAM:
- in this program tutors work with students at the end of the school day, in the school, for approximately 30 - 60 minutes (schools vary in terms of end of day exit time but usually tutoring times start between 3:00 and 3:15 pm)
- participating schools develop their own tutoring program model and may implement after school tutoring on one or more days a week
- the focus of tutoring in this program may include: assisting with homework assignments, projects, reading, math, remedial or enrichment activities
- tutors may work with students from a variety of elementary grade levels, but this is dependent on the tutoring model adopted by each participating school
- tutors are hired to be in the school for 1.5 hours each of the days that the participating school identifies in their particular tutoring model
- this time includes a maximum of 30 min. for preparation... time spent with students could be up to 60 min.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR A TUTOR?
In addition to gaining valuable and practical experience by working with students in a school setting, tutors in both tutoring programs will receive remuneration of $15.60 per hour.
TIME AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Participation in both tutoring programs is for the 2018-2019 school year. Pending budget availability and the number of tutoring hours allotted to schools, tutors may expect to tutor up to the end of May and possibly later.
Prior to beginning their tutoring role, tutors must provide a current (within the last six months), Police Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector, and attend (a paid), three hour orientation session.
Tutors are responsible for their own transportation during their tutoring schedule.
The school principal is the Tutor's immediate supervisor.
There are designated KPR schools involved in the two tutoring programs which are located in the Board’s geographic areas of Clarington, Northumberland, Peterborough County and the City of Peterborough. Specific cities in those areas are noted on the application form.
The application form contains more specific information which interested applicants are encouraged to review when considering whether or not to apply for a tutoring position.
