Bloomington Public Schools Science Tutoring

Agency Description: Bloomington Public Schools Science Tutoring is a program in which Normandale students work within the Bloomington Public School District to help K-12 students improve their science skills.  Most opportunities are in middle school.

Position Description: Tutors spend 1.5 to 3 hours a week during a set time at a Bloomington school, tutoring students in science. Most tutors work one-on-one with students or will help a number of students in a classroom.  Tutoring positions are during the school day (8:00 am-2:30 pm) Monday-Friday.  Tutoring times vary based on when they have science class.  We do our best to work around your schedule when we place you with a classroom. You will need your own transportation to and from the school; several schools are on the bus line. You must also pass a background check (no cost to you).  While previous tutoring experience is helpful, it is not required to apply. New tutors attend a required 30 minute training session at Normandale.
