The Grow Your Own Teachers (GYO) program at Northeastern Illinois University is seeking educators who can assist undergraduate students in preparing for the TAP (Test of Academic Proficiency). A "passings core"" on the TAP or ACT+Writing is required of students desiring entry into NEIU's College of Education.
We are in need of people to prepare GYO candidates for the Language Arts, Reading and Writing portions of the TAP. Most of the GYO candidates are non-traditional students (older, working and/or with family responsibilities) of color.
Salary is $30-40/hour, depending on background and experience. The workshops are being offered in the evening during the week and all day (9-4) on Saturdays. Each module is six hours. They are scheduled to begin May 28 and will run through June 29. The weeknight workshops will be held at NEIU (5500 North St. Louis). The location of the Saturday workshops has not yet been determined. I've attached the schedule so you can see what type of time commitment is required.
Workshop teachers need to hold a bachelor's degree and have prior teaching experience in the subject area.
