    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Great Oaks Charter School.

    Interview Details

    phone interview then onsite. you get to see the school and tutor students. you leave for lunch and then they decide to invite you back or not. the staff was very nice and accommodating. it was cool to work with an actual student. i didn't realize that i would be interviewing with other people. it was nice to be able to talk to people in the same position. they also give you tips for traveling to the location and different methods of transportation. the itinerary ran pretty well as planned. the school is an old church and not in very nice condition. i hope they get a new building soon. i would recommend interviewing because its always good to build experience even if you dont get the job or dont want the job

    Tutor Corps Fellowship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Great Oaks Charter School in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for Great Oaks Tutor Corps in May 2014. The process took one month.

    Four days after applying online, I received an invitation to a phone screening. The brief, 15-minute screening was very insightful. My interviewer invited me to an on-site visit scheduled two weeks in advance. From 9am-2pm, I had the opportunity to tour the school, observe a class, and assist two students in math and reading tutorials. Following a lunch with a current Corps member, two school leaders conducted individual final interviews. Everyone was very authentic and quite dedicated to closing the achievement gap. They are searching for candidates who are self-reflective, patient (with children), and who have personality. This is not merely a job, but a lifestyle.
