With great training and onsite coaching, we’ll prepare you to work one-on-one or in small groups to help kids develop their reading skills and confidence! Students make the most progress when you are there, so our tutors serve during school hours and are needed for the whole school year.

We are currently recruiting for the 2021-22 school year. Service will begin in August 2021.

This is an AmeriCorps member position with Reading Corps. Although the earnings are modest, the rewards are great! You’ll join an amazing group of tutors, determined to help students be more.

  • Be impactful by participating in training and ongoing professional development.
  • Be the motivation by representing Reading Corps at school-sponsored activities to help build awareness of Reading Corps and early literacy.
  • Be an ambassador of the program by sharing your experience with

the wider community.

  • A stipend of $700 paid every 2 weeks
  • Up to $4,441 for tuition or student loans*

Great tutors come from all walks of life. Whether you are 18 or 85, the most important qualification is a desire to help children succeed. That said, you also need to meet the following minimum qualifications by the time you begin your service.

  • Are dependable and have a history of good attendance
  • Able to understand and follow instructions
  • Can set a pace and maintain a schedule with students
  • Have basic computer skills (like email and navigating online)
