  • PPS is Hiring AVID Tutors

    AVID Tutors support the AVID Elective by running "tutorials." In the tutorials, students craft questions based on homework and the group uses academic protocols to develop critical thinking skills while answering the questions and helping each other with assignments. AVID Tutors guide the process in order for students to get the most out of it. Because these are small hour commitments, they make awesome jobs for parents working in the home, future teachers, and folks that like young and maturing adolescents. avid tutorConsider applying today!
