Job Title: Athletic Tutor

Hiring Period: Academic Year, Summer | Hourly Pay Rate: $14.00 | Hours per week: 2-8
On/Off Campus: Off Campus | Work-Study/Non Work-Study: Non Work-Study

Job Description: We are looking for a tutor for my 11 year old son who is high functioning ASD.

I am hoping to find a kind generous companion for him who has experience with kids on the spectrum who can introduce him to a variety of sports/outdoor activities.

Our goals for him are increased physical/mental stamina and learning how outside and physical play can be fun.

I am flexible about the number of sessions per week, but all hours would be:
after 3pm M/T/Th or
after 1pm on Wednesday.
Monday afternoon availability would be great.

Tutoring sessions can take place at our home in Shutesbury, or in Amherst/Deerfield/beyond (depending on what you are doing that day) and we can work together to decide what the "curriculum" should be.

I hope you have ideas for games and ways to encourage strength development!

He is into riding his bike, messing around in the stream behind the house, RingFit, pretend football (with an imaginary ball) and can swim.

He would like to learn to play baseball and throw a football (but sessions should build beyond that.)
