Tutoring preferences
Best day(s) to tutor: *
Please check the day or days you would most like to tutor. Please only select one option if you would like to tutor once a week, but if you would like to tutor twice a week, please select two days.
Preferred tutoring program: *
VELA scholars have the option of engaging in academic tutoring from 2.30pm to 3.30pm, or facilitating after school enrichment activities from 3.30pm to 5.00pm. Please indicate your preference, or if you would like to do both.
Other tutoring day options: *
Though we will do our best to schedule on their first choice day, this might not always be an option due to transportation limits. If you can make another day, please indicate this below.
Attendance policy

This program requires Amherst College instructors to be present at every session (11 per semester). It is vital that all instructors commit to at least one day per week. The Middle School students look forward to their instructors coming each week, and strong attendance demonstrates our commitment to each child. The only legitimate excuse for absence is illness. Any instructors who misses more than two sessions in a semester will be asked to leave the program.

Transportation: *
Do let us know if you are able to drive for VELA (this means you have to be registered with Campus Police).
