 AVID Tutors, Whitefish Bay High School

AVID is a national framework that includes both school-wide strategies and elective class that students must apply to that is focused on post-secondary readiness.  In the elective students spend 2 days/week, participating in tutorials (essentially Socratic seminars) in which the students help each other through a pre-determined "point of confusion" by asking questions.  These small groups are facilitated by "tutors" who are trained for roughly 4-5 hours in something called "Tutorology." 

This is compensated at $11/hour, and it is often a great opportunity for education students, retired teachers, etc. Possible Tutors must apply on WECAN (it's a support position). No content knowledge is needed.
