What Next?

Once you submit your application and we receive your teacher recommendation, you will receive an email from tutoringomu@gmail.com. This email will state the grade level(s) and subject(s) that you will be tutoring. You will then select the time slot(s) that you want to tutor for your assigned day. Once you select your slot(s) please maintain them as we will not be changing slots every week! So please select times that you know you will always be available. ​

We will then follow up with a virtual sit down conversation with you to review all the information you provided. 

 

*Reminder that each tutoring time slot is 30 minutes. You are giving an hour per session: 30 for the actual tutoring and 30 for preparing for the session. You will be awarded 1 service hour per tutoring session. *

You will be emailed information about the mandatory training session, which will teach you how each session is supposed to be run, what you need to do to prepare, and much more needed to be a tutor. After the training session, you are all ready to go to become a tutor for our program!
