UTSS Tutors are placed in elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the Seattle Public Schools to provide support to students and teachers. Tutors may serve as circulating classroom assistants, lead a small group, or provide individual academic support during regular school hours. Once placed in a partner school, tutors are directed by the principal and an appointed site coordinator for the duration of the contracted school year. 

A Successful Tutor...

  • Fosters learning while working with staff and students,

  • Collaborates and communicates effectively with UTSS staff, school building co-workers, and students,

  • Is adaptable; able to identify problems and takes immediate action needed and also is flexible within the dynamic school environment they are working in,

  • Is reliable and accountable for personal behavior,

  • Acts with empathy and compassion, embracing diversity and is able to build relationships across lines of differences.


We are still hiring for positions to support students during the 2nd semester of the 2020-21 school year!

Positions are open until filled.

UTSS is an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran or disability status.
