One of our main priorities as an organization is to ensure the
quality and reliability of our tutors.
We understand how important it is for students to have a positive role model especially since we hope our tutors will form a relationship beyond academics as a lasting mentor with each student. While maintaining appropriate professionalism, we hope to create a learning environment for students that is both comfortable and exciting through our tutors.
To keep our tutors up to our standards both academically and behaviourally we require each of our tutors to sign our "Tutor Expectations" contract and are held accountable for all listed expectations for their entire duration as a Robin's Nest tutor. Academically, this includes having a
- minimum unweighted GPA of 3.5/4.0
- minimum scores of 700/800 for each SAT subsection and SAT subject test (for SAT tutors)
-minimum scores of 32/36 for each ACT subsection (for ACT tutors)
-a minimum score of 4/5 for each AP test (per AP subject tutored)
You can find a copy of our entire "Tutor Expectations" form here.
We find our tutors through a mixture of personal connections and recommendations from our head AP/IB counselor at Lubbock High School Ms. Erin Castle. Before officially instating tutors, they are approved by Ms. Castle and interviewed by our head tutors. If you have any further questions about our recruitment process, feel free to let us know here.
