Applicants must be returning to full- or part-time post-secondary studies in the fall.

Interviews and information training sessions for potential tutors will be conducted at the SCDSB Education Centre (1170 Hwy. 26 in Midhurst) on February 18 and February 25, from 4 to 7 p.m. This process includes professional learning for candidates in the following areas: literacy, numeracy and assistive technology. Students interested in becoming a tutor must pre-register for one of the evening sessions listed above by emailing Pauline Cook at A limited number of spaces are available. Principals will select tutors from those who have successfully completed recruitment criteria.
