After School Reading Tutor (Volunteer position)
To schedule an interview, email <firstname.lastname@example.org> or complete and submit this form.
Tutors will help elementary school students improve their reading and writing skills through structured tutoring sessions. Past experience in tutoring or education is not required as all tutors will receive an initial, comprehensive training on how to use the Reading A-Z curriculum. Tutors will also receive ongoing training and support throughout their time with ACC to ensure proper implementation of the curriculum and ongoing development towards becoming a high-quality tutor.
– Use the Reading A-Z curriculum and related materials to assist children in grades 1-5 with the development of their reading skills (decoding, fluency, comprehension, etc.)
– Assist children with homework and basic writing exercises individually and in small groups
– Support children in developing confidence and a love of reading, by maintaining an inclusive, positive and friendly attitude
– Attend tutor trainings as required, with a commitment to practicing any new skills learned
Tutors must commit to working for at least one full session (Jan.-May, June-July or Aug.-Dec.). Tutoring takes place Monday-Thursday from 3:30-4:30pm, and tutors may choose to work either Monday and Wednesday OR Tuesday and Thursday, for one or two hours each day. Tutors may also elect to come all four days, for one or two hours each day.
Spring 2020 tutoring will begin on Monday, January 20, 2020, with required training the week beforehand. However, please feel free to apply after this date. Volunteer tutors will be accepted on a rolling basis.
