About the Tutor Corps

The Great Oaks Tutor Corps is a diverse group of recent college graduates with a variety of backgrounds and interests. Some tutors are interested in education policy and wish to experience life on the ground in an urban school. Others plan to pursue a career in medicine, law or to enroll in another graduate program and wish to first give a year of service. For tutors who wish to become high-performing teachers, Great Oaks offers multiple pathways to certification. In exchange for serving as an AmeriCorps Great Oaks Tutor Corps member with us, tutors receive fully furnished housing with utilities and basic household items included, a living stipend, health insurance, a Segal Education Award after completing their service hours and the opportunity to be a part of a community where everyone is passionate about changing outcomes for urban students.To ensure tutors are prepared to effectively work with students, each year our tutors begin their service in August by participating in intensive pre-service training at their own school. In addition, tutors attend Tutorpalooza – a convening of all tutors across our network to participate in professional development, networking and social gatherings.
