Why be a reading tutor?
Work with a small group of children to help them significantly improve one of their most important skills: Reading. You can adapt your instruction to meet the needs of kids, and you will see them develop and grow.
No “canned” approach to reading instruction. You have the flexibility to help kids in the way that will be most effective. You will know that you are making a huge difference in children’s success!
We are specifically looking for PreK–12th grade teachers, but education assistants, higher education instructors, and others are also welcome to apply.

Application Forms and Requirements
The application to tutor is completed online only. However, some forms require original signatures and must be completed in paper copies and mailed in.
- Parents submit registration forms to their schools, and the school delivers the registration information to the Foundation regional coordinator.
- The regional coordinator groups kids and assigns them to tutors.
- Tutors contact the parents of assigned students and determine the time and place for tutoring sessions.
- Tutors meet with the group 2 hours per week (usually 2 1-hour sessions, especially for younger children).
- During the first session, the tutor administers the reading assessment to understand students’ strengths and challenges and submits the results to the regional coordinator.
- The tutor designs instructions and provides resources, as needed, to deliver reading instruction that addresses students’ challenges.
- At the last session, the tutor again administers the reading assessment and submits the results to the regional coordinator.
Responsibilities and Agreements
You will also need to submit a copy of your social security card. All forms are submitted to the regional coordinator in your area.
