Get Ready to Love Mondays Again

Being a tutor is incredibly rewarding. As you work with students, you’ll build a bond and they’ll become your biggest fans. You can expect to receive plenty of high fives, hugs and excited hellos. While you provide the 1:1 time they crave, you’re building the skills they need to thrive.

The Experience Overview

Location

Placed at a school, you’ll work with kids 1:1 or in groups to help them get extra practice and build their skills and confidence.

Schedule

Start and end times vary by location, but you’ll generally follow the same daily schedule as your school. When students are on break for holidays and release days, so are you!

Training

No experience? No problem! Your Reading Corps/Math Corps service will begin with training. We will teach you everything you need to know and support you every step of the way.

Community

As a tutor, you’ll be a special part of the team at your school. A school staff member will be your internal coach and help you day to day. You’ll also have support from your program manager and opportunities to connect with other tutors in your area.
