Responsibilities

Collaborate with the teacher in a preschool or Head Start classroom to develop students’ early literacy and Kindergarten-readiness skills. Tutors will provide intentional and fun literacy instruction throughout the day to children ages 3-5

Work with the whole class, small groups of students, and one-on-one. Daily activities include greeting children at arrival, helping children write their names at sign-in, encouraging mealtime conversations, writing a daily message, conducting Repeated Read Alouds, journaling, and enhancing literacy during choice time

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.

Participate in site-sponsored activities such as book fairs and family nights

While the majority of service hours are completed onsite during school hours, most tutors engage in additional community service, which may take place during evening and weekend hours.
