low stakes, low reward
Tutor (Former Employee), Anaheim, CANovember 21, 2013
Pros: it offered experience teaching
Cons: low pay, few hours
I would help high school children with there homework serving as an aid to the acting teacher in the room. Most students did not really want my help, and the ones that did had a hard time hearing me in the noisy room.

We run tutorials as well grade AVID student materials; monitor students development as well as motivate them to achieve. Co-workers are great and well-informed to AVID practices. Hardest part is managing a plethora of personalities and different subject-matter, simultaneously.

Nice to make an impact on kids' lives through education
Tutor (Current Employee), Kissimmee, FLJune 5, 2013
Pros: nice paycheck, laid back environment, fixed schedule, field trips, great for someone who likes kids!
Cons: not the answer for someone who doesn't remember much of what these students are learning
Nice schedule and light work. Pay is decent and coordinators are great! Hardest part is trying to dig up past knowledge of middle-school/high-school curriculum to be able to help students out with their points of confusion. Once past that, job is fun, and you get to go on field trips!

Learned to have more patience with kids that learn different speeds. Very kind coworkers and flexible hours. Management was sometimes hard to get a hold of, but did their job. Had fun joking with the kids to keep their spirits up and make learning fun and easy.

Helped me to graduation
Vice President (Former Employee), Redlands, CAMay 28, 2013
Pros: lots of trips
Cons: management is brutally honest
Advancement Via Individual Determination was an hour of my day Monday-Friday. I learned how to take notes, organization skills, how to be a team player, and most importantly how to make it in a university setting. My colleagues are now just as close as my family is to me. The hardest part of working in AVID is getting used to the habits it instills – more... and breaking the old ones. The best part is knowing that you leave there with the skills and mindset that set you apart from other candidates. – less

AVID is an amazing job; however, it only lasts during the school year.
Tutor (Current Employee), Marshall, TXMay 7, 2013
A typical work day consists of me assisting students with essays, teaching me how to work with others. Management is consistent. My co-workers are very ambitious and helpful. My most enjoyable part of the job is being able to assist others in their academic endeavors.

Fantastic learning and working experience
Academic Peer Tutor (Former Employee), Union MIne High School, El Dorado, CaliforniaApril 23, 2013
Pros: great learning and working opportunity, happy to make a difference, awesome co-workers
Cons: struggled with unfamiliar problems
The Advancedment Via Individual Determination or AVID program provided at Union Mine High School is a college preperation course which ultimately helps students devise a better understanding of what they will be expecting in college. As Mike Ziegler, coordinator of the AVID program at Union Mine High School, once said, ""It started with one high school – more... and 32 students and now it's in 4,900 high schools and post-secondary institutions and serves 700,000 students". Being an AVID tutor really informed me of the different techniques the students utilized to better inform and prepare themselves for college. I would help out an individual who was struggling with a problem and help them try to grasp a better understanding of how to solve that problem. Overall, it was an unforggetable and pleasant experience working with several of these students and watching them grow to professional students representing their fabulous Union Mine High School. – less

A typical day at work consisted of constructing plans, people interface, and organizing plans. My co-workers were professional and easy-goiong. The hardest part of the job was there never seemed to be enough time to get everything done, but I enjoyed it so much it wasn't a sacrifice to stay late or come in early.
