Tutor Application Process
Our tutors complete an extensive application process which ensures they are competent and qualified. We understand that grades are not the most representative of a student's character or ability to tutor, so prospective tutors also must provide a teacher reference. We then reach out to this teacher to fill out a brief recommendation survey to ensure the student is qualified in the subjects they are interested in tutoring for. Students are then notified of the results of their application within one week. If approved, they will be placed in our selection of qualified tutors and will be notified if they have been paired with a student seeking tutoring. Tutor applications are always open and personally reviewed on a rolling basis by our president and founder, Eloise Massee.
Tutor Pairing Process
After a student requests a tutor with the form found on our website, Bay Port Tutoring Connections reviews the request and pairs the student with an approved volunteer tutor that has interest in that particular subject area or class. After confirming availability with the selected tutor, we then email the student their tutor pairing, meeting schedule, contact information, and study hall passes to work in their assigned meeting location on campus. (At the time, all tutoring is done in-person; however, accommodations can be made to meet virtually with select tutors, so please reach out with any questions.)
Our Communication Policy
If you have a question, concern, or special circumstance request, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will return your email within 48 hours. Since we personally review all tutor requests and tutor applications, please give us 7 days to fulfill any tutor pairing or application. If you have not received an update within 7 days of submission, please reach out to identify the delay. (Please note that for a tutor application, it may take longer that 7 days due to the status of a teacher reference. We do not approve tutors until we have received the teacher reference survey, so that could be the delay in your application.)
