  • Utilize supplementary material (e.g., games and activities) to create fun, engaging lessons while following the curriculum.
  • Communicate positively and respectfully with the child throughout each lesson, ensuring the child leaves feeling encouraged by the experience.
  • Keep written progress case notes after each session and prepare lessons and goals for the following session.
  • Within tutoring times, provide verbal feedback to guardians on their child’s progress if requested. 
  • Prepare progress reports outlining student’s achievements and focus for future sessions at the end of each tutoring term.

  • Applicants must be patient, caring, empathetic, encouraging, reliable, punctual, adaptable, dedicated, and possess good organizational skills.
  • Preference is given to those with previous teaching, tutoring, or child-care experience; however, an interest or passion in these areas will be considered. 
  • Must have experience or feel comfortable working with children and youth who have ADHD or are on the Autism spectrum.
  • If tutoring online, prior experience using Zoom is an asset, as is working with students virtually, and must have a quiet space with a reliable computer and internet connection.
