Description

Literacy First is an AmeriCorps tutoring program that focuses on early literacy. Literacy First tutors provide one-to-one tutoring to ensure all children are reading at or above grade level by third grade. We use an explicit, research-based curriculum to address critical reading skills. All training and mentorship will be provided by our supervisors and staff, who are literacy experts. Half-time Bilingual Tutors serve 30 hours each week, Monday - Friday from 7:30 AM - 1:30 PM.

Bilingual Tutors will be primarily instructing and teaching students to read in Spanish. Spanish speaking students that qualify for our program are in a dual language (One-Way Spanish or Two-Way Spanish) classroom setting. Bilingual tutors will be setup for success with scripted lesson plans and ongoing weekly Spanish support. Bilingual applicants must have basic proficiency skills in speaking, reading, and writing Spanish.
