OPENLITERACY IS HIRING TUTORS!
OpenLiteracy is hiring additional tutors for our existing tutoring corps. Tutors will work with students in grades 3-10 in reading and writing. Tutors provide live 40-45-minute tutoring sessions between June 21st and August 13th. The time commitment for each student is 18 tutoring sessions. Most tutors take on 2-3 students. Tutoring sessions can be scheduled in collaboration with the family. We expect that most sessions will take place between 4-9 p.m. The curriculum for summer tutoring is pre-set, tutors are not responsible for designing lessons.
ABOUT THE TUTORING CORPS
This program is focused on supporting 6th through 9th grade students in math and reading and 3-8th grade students in reading only. Many students who are receiving tutoring have experienced learning loss or interrupted schooling as a result of Covid-19 related school closures, making this an especially important time to support students with tutoring to reduce educational inequities.
Founded in July 2013, OpenLiteracy designs and delivers innovative solutions to help ensure that every student educated in the United States, regardless of race or income, will be prepared for success in college, careers, and life. The OpenLiteracy project team is led by Sarah Scott Frank, a former professor of reading. Find out more about OpenLiteracy at www.openliteracy.com/about
