Tutors - The Fellowship Initiative (TFI)The Bard Early Colleges have partnered with The Fellowship Initiative (TFI) and are seeking talented tutors in any subject area (writing, science, math) to teach Saturday classes the Manhattan-based program, which provides intensive academic support and guidance to young men of color. Students join the cohort at the beginning of 10th grade and are expected to stick with the program through the end of 12th grade, resulting in opportunities for committed, long-term support and guidance.
Bard Early Colleges & The Fellowship Initiative:
Through this partnership, Bard leads non-credit-bearing instruction for a cohort of 60 motivated young men of color. A broad curricular framework is provided by Bard Early Colleges; across the disciplines, our emphasis throughout is on the writing-to-learn practices at the heart of Bard's pedagogy.
Classes meet for three Saturdays per month, from 9am to 1pm in mid-town Manhattan. The term of instruction (Spring '18) is January 6 through May 19th; quarterly and semester long appointments are available. Ideal candidates are available to commit to a full semester to work one-on-one with students and support long-term growth.
We are seeking tutors in any discipline. Tutors primarily work with individual students on writing, math, or science, as well as improving general study skills and time management. Tutors are compensated through Bard College at a competitive hourly rate.
