College Kids and Tutoring

College kids are portrayed by the media as some of the most selfish and dumb people on the planet. According to pop culture, they just go around getting drunk all the time with no time for anyone else. But it turns out that many students don’t really conduct themselves like this. That’s why there are community service fraternities and Habitat for Humanity chapters spread throughout college campuses in the country. Tutoring needy kids also hasn’t been lost on the college crowd.
Usually since college campuses are located in some kind of semi-urban area there are a lot of inner city schools and needy children spread around the area while nobody’s really willing to give them the time of day. But colleges and high schools have recently started teaming up to try to fix everything. College kids who need jobs are now being assigned to work at high schools in their spare time to help the kids while also earning some kind of modest wage.

Usually the college kids that get assigned to work in these schools are doing it for federal work study money and have some kind of financial need themselves. They understand where the kids are coming from. Their high schools were often not of the best quality so they really can relate. Some even grew up in the same inner city environments as these kids so nothing is lost in translation.

Often times the teachers of these kids already have tenure and don’t really want to bother going out of their way to teach these kids. Often times there are exceptions like Jaime Escalante of Stand and Deliver but really most teachers wouldn’t put in nearly that kind of effort. However, the students that come in are given the specific job of teaching these kids, so they really don’t have anything else to do. They don’t have tenure so if they don’t do a good job, they’re out of there. It really is in their best interests to teach these kids after all.

Teachers often don’t put in nearly enough time teaching problem students but when you bring in college kids for that specific purpose, everything can change.
