You can make a difference in the life of a low-income high school student who has that dream—just like you did—of going to college. If you have the enthusiasm to work with committed, under-served students, you can make a positive impact by helping to increase SAT scores, providing advice about the college application process and boosting confidence about attending college. Week by week, you will see the impact of your help and support as your students’ SAT scores and enthusiasm for college increase.

Requirements:

  • Commit to Coaching one night a week, three hours per night for a semester, as well as one hour of prep time per week
  • Scored a 600 or above on the SAT subject you are teaching
  • Be willing to serve as a role model and guide for high school students (work with approximately 5 students in your group)
  • Have a genuine interest in working with and teaching high school students
  • ALL majors are considered!

Training & Curriculum:

  • Let’s Get Ready will provide a detailed curriculum and train you to 1) teach the math or critical reading/writing section of the SAT; and 2) guide students through the complexity of the college admissions process

 

It is by no means a requirement, but if you are a former Let’s Get Ready student, Let’s Get Ready encourages you to “pay it forward” and coach students like yourself.
