SAGA Innovations – A Unique Opportunity

SAGA InnovationsSAGA Innovations is dedicated to transforming American public education by driving the expansion of the nationally recognized innovation of high-dosage, intensive daily tutoring. They partner with district public schools to provide students the opportunity to work with a qualified, engaging, full time tutor who tailors instruction to the needs of two students at a time. Fellows guarantee the academic success of students by focusing intently on individualizing instruction and building personal and meaningful relationships with their students.

Every site has a coordinator who is responsible for observing, training and assisting Fellows through the entire year. Fellows will be observed daily and must be hungry for feedback. It’s ideal that you have:

  • Bachelor’s degree required (ALL majors accepted)
  • Strong basic high school math skills
  • Passion for education reform and hunger for feedback
  • Prior paid or volunteer experience with students
  • Prior paid or volunteer experience with students
  • Teaching certificate and/or education major not required

Fellows receive a stipend for their service, access to health and dental benefits as well as intensive professional development and training on effective instructional techniques and student behavior management. Fellows are also eligible for student loan forgiveness (Federal Perkins Loan only). In addition, there is a genuine opportunity for advancement within the organization after the tutoring position ends in June.

Responsibilities:

  • Tutor students in math. Fellows prepare daily lesson plans with materials that are provided by our curriculum directors.
  • Work with two students at a time for 7 of the 8 periods of the school day. Fellows will have a personal caseload of up to 14 students they will work with every day.
  • Contact families each week about student progress. This communication forges trust, creates relationships and keeps parents aware of the successes and needs of their children.
  • Enter student grades and complete daily reports.
