The Application Process

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until all Fellows are hired. We seek candidates from a diverse set of academic, social and cultural backgrounds. In considering applications, we primarily look for a strong academic record, coaching or tutoring experience, and a readiness to rise to the many demands and challenges that come with working with at-risk youth. We need idealistic and driven people who are hungry for consistent feedback.

The application process includes four steps.


Online Application

Start the application process now.  


Phone Interview

You’ll speak with one of our recruiters about your background, your interest in tutoring and what skills and contributions you would bring to our program.


Online Math Assessment

This online math aptitude test includes multiple-choice and short-answer questions intended to assess your skills in basic high school math.


On-site Sample Tutorial

The final step in the process is an on-site interview where you will deliver a sample tutorial to two students. You’ll receive materials and guidelines to help you prepare your lesson. After the tutorial, you’ll reflect on how you did and then our observers will share feedback with you about your performance.
