Why Be a Tutor?


Back on Track’s growth and continued success is based on the interest and commitment of our participants – our tutors, students, and parents/guardians. As a tutor and mentor with Back on Track, you can enjoy the satisfaction from encouraging students’ progress, empowering students to become academically self-reliant, and making an impact in the local community.

All participants go through a registration process which includes a paper application and an interview to assess needs, interests, and personality types. Each student is matched with a tutor based on four criteria: 1) subject; 2) age; 3) time availability; and 4) personality. After being matched, tutors are required to attend an orientation and training session.

  • Careful matching with a K-12 student through student, parents, and tutor interviews
