**Senior Coordinator of Tutoring Services**
Employer: San Francisco Education Fund (SFEF)
Job Title: Senior Coordinator, Tutoring Services
Type: Full-time, exempt
Location: San Francisco, CA (currently remote; returning to in-person part time in August)
Start Date: July, 2021
WHO WE ARE
The San Francisco Education Fund leverages the full power and breadth of our collective resources to invest in the success of SFUSD public school students; mobilizing the community through tutoring and mentoring, scholarships, teacher grants, and corporate school adoption.
We believe all students deserve an equitable and inclusive education experience and the opportunity to thrive, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, socio-economic status, gender, sexual orientation, or other life circumstances.
We know “It Takes a Community” and we're looking for passionate changemakers dedicated to improving San Francisco public schools to join our team.
Additional information about the Ed Fund’s programs can be found at www.sfedfund.org.
Our vision is for San Francisco to become the first city to offer universal access to free tutoring. Why tutoring? It is a researched backed intervention approach that can catch students up to 2 grade levels in one year. This matters because a student who is reading proficient by 4th grade increases their chances of making it to college by 400%. And that could lead to $1M earning increase in their lifetime.
Currently the Ed Fund is partnering to provide 2,000 students virtual literacy tutoring by credentialed teachers. With students coming back to school in person this fall, we are anticipating needing to grow this support to serve at least 5,000 and possibly up to 20,000 students via high dosage tutoring. Reporting to the Partnerships Manager, the role would entail strong collaboration with tutoring service providers, SFUSD and families to connect services to students most at need and ensure equity of access to tutoring support.
YOUR OPPORTUNITY FOR IMPACT
We are seeking an innovative go-getter who thrives even amidst challenges and unknowns. Someone who will help create the structure and partnerships necessary to provide free tutoring to 5,000 low-income elementary aged students as a start, and possibly grow to supporting 20,000 students via tutoring across San Francisco. This is a new role that may evolve depending on the needs of the learners and we are looking for an entrepreneur who will design and evolve this program as we learn more about students and their needs coming back to school in person.
