BUILD operates an in-school tutoring program at the Tobin School Monday through Friday. Tutors work with students with guidance from classroom teachers. Many students are English language learners.
Tutors typically work one-on-one with students using a read-aloud tutoring method focused on developing comprehension skills. BUILD tutors also provide math tutoring through America Counts at this site.
Hours: 9:45 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. (travel time not included)
The Tobin After School program operates Monday through Friday. Tobin After School has a very diverse student body, including a number of students who are English Language Learners.
BUILD tutors are commonly referred to as “Mentors,” reflecting the nature and closeness of the relationships fostered between each staff member and the small group of 2-4 children with whom he or she works each week. Tutors are expected to devote extra time to the development of literacy activities and games, which they share with both students and staff.
Hours: 3:30 p.m. – 6 p.m. (travel time not included)
