As a tutor at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls, you will be asked to meet weekly, on the same night each week, with your assigned youth during study time to work on homework, academic skill building, and life skills. If your assigned youth is not available, you will be asked to work with another youth who has homework or is in need of support during study time.
Often, tutors ask to only work on a specific subject with youth. While we take these requests into consideration for pairing purposes, overall, we cannot guarantee that you will be working on the subject area that you request. Due to the nature of middle and high school coursework, a youth’s homework may be unpredictable from one night to the next. As their tutor, we ask that you put forth your best effort helping the youth with the content, and teach them how to problem-solve when the material may be difficult.
