Instructional Aide: High Intensity Tutoring

Reports to: Principal

Classification: Full-time, Hourly, Non-Exempt

One year contract expiring 6/30/22

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Start date: As soon as possible 


Green Dot Public Schools California is a non-profit network of public charter schools helping to transform the public education system so that ALL students graduate prepared for college, leadership, and life. Our schools are founded on an unwavering belief in the potential of all students, and there are four key elements to our school model that help us unlock the inherent potential in every student we serve: quality teaching and instruction, a college-going culture, a focus on fostering leadership and life skills, and a focus on eliminating barriers to learning. We have 19 schools and over 11,000 students across Los Angeles.  Our schools are located in some of the most underserved communities that have been denied access to high-quality educational opportunities, and we seek to prove that it is possible to close the access and opportunity gap that exists between low-income students and their more affluent peers.

What differentiates Green Dot California is our intense focus on truly serving ALL students, our collaboration with reform-minded unions, our work focused on large-scale turnarounds of schools formerly run by the districts, and our ability to take on the toughest challenges with the same public funding received by traditional district schools but accomplishing very different results.  Green Dot California’s results are undeniable.  Nine of our high schools have been ranked among the top schools in the country.  We have three California Distinguished schools and 3 California Gold Ribbon schools, and several of our schools have been recipients of the CORE Districts’ Academic Growth Awards, which honor schools having the greatest impact on student achievement. Additionally, Green Dot’s first turnaround, Alain LeRoy Locke College Preparatory Academy, was named Charter School of the Year by the California Charter Schools Association in 2019.


The Instructional Aide: High Intensity Tutoring is designed to serve students in grades 6 and 9 in order to customize instruction to students based on specific math gaps or the pre-requisite skills they need to practice. The incumbent will be assigned to work with small groups of students in general education and special education classrooms during the school day. In this role, you will receive the opportunity to build relationships with students and diagnose, monitor, and drive accelerated learning of math concepts.  Please note that this position will have a one-year contract, expiring 6/30/22.

Please note that should you apply for this position, you will be doing so to Green Dot Public Schools California in general – not to a specific school.  If a school has an Instructional Aide position open, they will review the general applicant pool for potential candidates. It is up to the school site who they choose to contact for an interview.
