When does Relay Tutor Corps start? How long is the program?

Relay Tutor Corps is a semester-long program that takes place during the spring semester. The program begins with an initial training session held in January, and tutoring will continue through late April.

What kind of training is provided?

Tutors will participate in several training sessions throughout the course of the program. These Saturday sessions are led by Relay faculty and help tutors apply basic relationship-building skills to their work with their students. With regular support of Relay staff, tutors will become confident in their abilities to help the elementary and middle school students they serve.

What experience do I need to apply?

In 2017, Relay Tutor Corps will take place at various school sites in New Orleans and Houston. In future years, we anticipate offering the program in additional cities where Relay campuses are located. Information about specific site locations is provided to applicants as it becomes available.

What time does the tutoring take place?

The specific days and times when tutoring occurs will vary by school site. Schedules are set to align with tutor availability, and this information will be shared with tutors at the beginning of the semester.
