Beaverton AVID Volunteer Tutoring Opportunity

September 09, 2015

You are invited to facilitate student led tutorials in a Beaverton middle school AVID class on Tuesdays or Thursdays for 60-120 minutes during the school day. School placement will vary depending on the school tutorial schedule and your availability.


Tutoring in AVID is different from any volunteer position you have held before. Many AVID students are first in their family to attend college and want to achieve big dreams! AVID students need role models and mentors to support their dream of college. AVID tutors assist students to achieve their full potential by facilitating collaborative tutorial groups that use Socratic questioning and collaborative learning techniques to help students come up with the answers to their questions on their own and by working with fellow students. You can be a part of changing the life of a student while learning valuable skills for your own education and for any workplace!


Participants will gain valuable ex! perience with innovative teaching methodologies that they can implement in their current education and take into their professional practice. o Hours will consist of direct student contact under the supervision of an AVID Elective Teacher. o Tutorial times vary depending on the middle school schedule and there are many tutorial time slots throughout the school day from 9:00am to 2:50pm. o 6 Hours of training is provided along with ongoing support throughout the year.


Today, the AVID College Readiness System is implemented in more than 4,900 schools in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and 16 countries and territories and in 41 institutions of higher education. Did you know that almost 50 school districts in Oregon have implemented AVID? That is over 100 AVID secondary schools in Oregon, and many of those districts are implementing AVID Elementary! The Beaverton School District currently has 17 sites implementing the AVID College Readiness System with AVID ele! ctive classes in 7th-10th grade. A community volunteer applica! tion and background check is required.
