Recently my school applied for a grant that would allow us to become supplemental educational support providers (tutors). The grant was approved and now they're hiring tutors from within our school, but from outside as well. I've been considering applying, but the deadline is tomorrow and I'm really not sure! Here's what the job would entail: I would be given 4 students (most likely 4 of my 5th graders) that I would be responsible for tutoring in reading and/or writing. I would be required to provide 30 hours of tutoring for each student either one-on-one, or in a small group from March-August. The tutoring times would be scheduled with the parents and could be right after school, or later on at night/weekends at the child's home. The stipend for the position is $32/hour which adds up to quite a bit of money if I end up tutoring the students one-on-one. Here's what I'm concerned about, though... I already work until 3:45 every day and always have grading/planning to do after school. I have either professional development or committee meetings every Tuesday until 5:15 and a staff meeting one Wednesday a month until 5:00. On top of that, as of April I'll be back into taking grad classes (and will be all summer). These things will all make scheduling tutoring slightly difficult. Also, this is my 3rd year in my current position and I finally feel like I've got it together. I don't want to start to feel overwhelmed by taking on something like this. Ugh, I don't know what to do. The hubby keeps saying that the money would be great, and I agree, but I don't want to do a half-hearted job at it because I've got too much on my plate. Anyway, I guess I still have some thinking to do. Thanks for letting me vent!
