FWISD Is Hiring AVID Tutors
Know a current college student who’s looking for a part-time job?
Fort Worth ISD needs AVID tutors who can work two days a week (Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday) with students at its secondary schools. Tutors will be responsible for tutoring students in the AVID program and assisting them with coursework and college awareness and planning.
Tutors can earn between $10 to $17 an hour depending on experience and training.
To apply, prospective tutors must:
- Have completed a minimum of 12 college credit hours from an accredited college or university
- Be currently enrolled in an accredited not-for-profit college or university
- NOT working as a substitute for Fort Worth ISD
- Possess a strong math and English background, as evidenced by college transcripts
- Be willing to travel to more than one school (within a designated geographic region of the District)
AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a national nonprofit program that equips students with the necessary tools for being accepted into and succeeding in college. Many of the students that participate in the program are first-generation college students.
