You’ll be Avid about AVID as a Tutor

AVID tutors facilitate small group sessions as students help each other with the class work they struggle with.

A special classroom program continues to expand in Albuquerque Public Schools and it needs community participation. There’s plenty of room for you, if you’ve got a couple of hours a week available to spend with middle or high school students.

The AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) program needs tutors, especially with the new semester coming up in January. Now in its third year in APS, AVID has expanded to 21 middle and high schools, offering an extra boost to students “in the middle” to prepare them for college.

Tutoring positions are available for a little pocket money, or for college students who want to earn some education course credit. For more information about applying as a tutor, contact Kim Crabtree at APS at 880-3769. Read more about AVID at the APS website.

AVID is an elective class for students who are capable of completing a college-prep path, but need extra support. This course helps students prepare for college and pushes them to take harder, more rigorous classes in high school. More than 1,000 APS students participate in the program every day.
