Become a Tutor 

Below, can find information regarding our tutor signup system, expectations, and frequently asked questions.

Expectations

 

Commitment: As a tutor at EDU Beyond, you will be required to commit to a student for a minimum of 3 months (the period can be extended if an agreement is reached between the tutor and the student). There is no requirement on the amount of hours/week as that will be negotiated between you and the student or their parent. However, we do expect you to commit to the schedule that you have agreed upon. 

 

Communication: In order to establish an effective work environment, we expect all tutors to respond to text messages/emails within 24 hours. Having a communicative tutor plays a big part in establishing an effective system. 

 

Accountability: Though your role as a tutor is voluntary, we expect you to be accountable to both the organization and the student. This includes showing up to each session on time and preparing adequate material for each session. 

 

Professionalism: At EDU Beyond, the goal is not only to provide free education but also to encourage involvement within the community. As you will be both a tutor and a mentor, we hope that you will maintain professionalism and a positive outlook during your interactions with your student.
