Description: Now recruiting for the 2012-2013 school year! Tutoring will start again in late August/early September 2012. We encourage interested volunteers to sign up, as we will be emailing reminders and updates to potential tutors over the summer.A childÂÂÂÂ’s third grade reading scores can predict with 70% accuracy the likelihood they will graduate from high school.Reading Partners provides an opportunity for volunteers from the community to give one 45 minute session each week to tutor one-on-one with an elementary school student.Pick any 1-hour time slot thatÂÂÂÂ’s convenient for you between 9am and 5pm, Monday through Thursday (you are welcome to help more if able).Reading Partners uses a very structured and easy-to-follow curriculum.One-on-one instruction at the studentÂÂÂÂ’s reading level provides the opportunity for individualized academic attention and a healthy learning relationship with you, the volunteer.Volunteers are, in turn, supported at all times by Reading Partners school site coordinators and staff.For more information, please visit http://www.readingpartners.org/volunteer
