Math Tutor Position

Be part of an organization dedicated to enhancing the practice of law and improving our community through programs that provide equal access to legal services. The Bar Association of San Francisco (BASF) has a strong commitment to employee work-life balance and provides a stimulating work environment. BASF currently has an exciting opportunity for a School-To-College (STC) Tutor (Temporary Part-Time) to be part of the team!

About BASF
BASF is a nonprofit organization. School-To-College (STC) is a mentoring program that encourages diverse, at-risk students, low-income, first-generation college students and students behind academically to go to college and guides them through the college application process. STC works with students in grades 9 through 12 in the Academy of Arts & Sciences High School in the San Francisco Unified School District (555 Portola Drive, San Francisco). The program does not service SOTA students and only  services Academy students.

STC ushers students into top-tier universities, thereby reducing the achievement gap and diversifying college campuses nationwide. STC accomplishes this by inspiring, motivating and supporting underserved and ethnically diverse students to attend college – an option many of these students never knew existed.

About the Job
The STC Tutor will provide individual and group math tutorial services to ethnically diverse and multi-cultural high school students (up to 30 daily). Tutoring will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.  The main focus will be in math. Specifically: Geometry, Algebra and Advanced Algebra. A back ground in Pre-Calculus and trigonometry are a plus but not mandatory for this position.  The tutor will assess the academic needs of the students and assist them with homework assignments, study work, course material review, Cyber High, etc. The tutor will also report on student progress on a weekly basis and produce student tracking reports. This position is available to start immediately and goes through May, 2012. Possible summer hours available.
