Bar/Bat Mitzvah students are assigned tutors at 10 months prior to their ceremony date. They are matched using the Tutor Assignment Survey families complete at the introductory B’nai Mitzvah Workshop.
Tutoring usually begins at 8 months prior to the service for morning services and 7 months prior to the service for Mincha services. Students typically meet with their tutors for 45 minute sessions two times a month.
Tutoring is paid for through the Bar/Bat Mitzvah fee and covers the cost of 18 sessions. Any tutoring over 18 sessions are billed at $45 per session. Tutors are employees of Temple Rodef Shalom and are paid directly by the Temple. Tutors undergo background checks. Tutors tutor at Temple Rodef Shalom or at their home. Tutors do not come to individual student’s homes.
