TeachTeam is a not-for-profit organization that provides free tutoring services to students of underserved schools across the United States. By using our multi-faceted teaching model called the "TEAM model", we hope to identify and address weaknesses in a student’s foundational knowledge of a topic, prepare a student for upcoming topics in their lesson plan, discover a student’s learning preferences and teach in a style they prefer, accommodate to learning/physical disabilities and/or behavioral disorders, and provide students important life skills that encourage the sustainability of academic success. We intend to improve a student’s academic confidence and encourage them to proceed on a path of higher education and pursue greater opportunities that the student may not be aware are available to them.
TeachTeam is looking for volunteers across the United States that want to receive practical experience and college credit while tutoring disadvantaged and at-risk youth in school districts that have limited access to educational resources. The tutors will be responsible for designing tests based on Common Core and the teacher's lesson plan that will evaluate weak areas in the student's curriculum, as well as applying techniques to personalize their education to accommodate for learning styles, disabilities and behavior problems. Volunteer tutors will have access to online resources and a knowledgeable staff that will provide guidance throughout the duration of their membership with TeachTeam.
All tutors will have to pass a background check that satisfies the requirements of the school district. After being fully vetted and processed, the tutor will be assigned up to three students within a reasonable distance from their university. There will be weekly meetings with the local operations manager to receive and turn in a timesheet that logs hours spent with students. Each tutor will be expected to complete five (5) hours of in-person tutoring sessions that they will be free to arrange themselves, in order to maintain flexibility with a university schedule. A number of public workshop plans will also be made available, if meeting the minimum hours isn't feasible with tutoring alone.
TeachTeam is looking to expand our core staff, which includes assistant positions in operations, human resources, development, and public relations. All positions will be unpaid internships that aim at developing professional experience using industry standard tools and methodology. Anyone interested in pursuing these opportunities can complete the universal application found on our website.
We recruit college students of any major who want to tutor local students in a subject of their choice for a five hour a week, unpaid internship. We highly encourage education majors to join us.
We currently offer tutoring services in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. Eventually we hope to branch out to other subjects, and are willing to recruit talented tutors of any discipline.
All TeachTeam tutors will be trained by a series of mentors whom have professional experience in the fields of education and disability support services.
All tutoring sessions will take place on school grounds during or school hours. Tutors may be assigned up to three students to work with a week. Tutors will only work with one student per session.
TeachTeam works with universities of our interns to ensure that they can earn credit hours as an independent study for interning with us.
Students will learn valuable study skills such as proper organization, note taking, effective group study tactics, distraction minimization, and much more!
TeachTeam provides free online tools and training to students in tech deserts to encourage more tech savvy and online literate communities.
High school students will learn important skills that will help them navigate the path to college or trade school. These skills will include filling out college applications, writing for grants and scholarships, computer literacy, and discovering opportunities for apprenticeships and trade schools.
