Responsibilities

Work one-on-one with students in kindergarten through third grade who need extra support learning to read. Tutors work with the same students in 20-minute sessions every day during school hours, using a variety of scripted Minnesota Reading Corps strategies, called interventions.

With younger students, tutors help build early literacy skills, such as letter sounds and names, and word blending. For older students, tutors select reading passages and follow intervention scripts to practice fluency skills.

Conduct quick and easy literacy assessments, and enter the student data into an online data system. Tutors will use this data to monitor student progress, plan, and set goals.

Maintain confidentiality of all student data

Provide opportunities for families to get involved in their child’s education by sharing Reading Corps literacy activities to do at home

Attend 3 days of mandatory training prior to service with students, plus additional required training sessions throughout the year. Tutors will receive the consistent support of an onsite coach. Some travel may be necessary to attend training.

Members who are on track with performance and hours will not need to serve on days when school is not in session i.e. Winter and Spring break.
