Description

Minnesota Reading Corps envision a future in which all Minnesota children will be proficient readers by the end of 3rd grade. Our Reading tutors help students build these critical foundational skills through 1-1 or small group tutoring support.

Tutors are fully trained in conducting progress monitoring assessments and research-based interventions, and will receive ongoing training and coaching support throughout the school year.

Tutoring
● Provide intentional and meaningful literacy tutoring during all parts of the day to improve the literacy skills of children from preschool–3rd grade.
● Assess, with high level of accuracy, child outcomes and progress using tri-annual benchmark assessments and ongoing progress monitoring assessments.
● Identify students who qualify for targeted one-on-one and/or small group tutoring services based on assessment data with direction from the Internal Coach and Master Coach; develop weekly tutoring schedule.
● Record student and program data completely and accurately in an online database on a weekly basis; maintain confidentiality of all student data.
● Participate in on-site coaching sessions (includes observation of tutor) two times per month to review student progress, plan, problem-solve, and set goals; act on constructive feedback from coaching sessions.

Communication
● Communicate with students in an age and developmentally appropriate way.
● Act on constructive feedback provided by coaches and Program Staff.
● Build professional relationships and communicate regularly with school/agency staff, Internal Coach, and the Master Coach regarding schedules, literacy strategies, student progress, etc.

Attendance
● Regular, timely attendance during school hours Monday-Friday, along with before/after school hours as scheduled.
● Commitment to the entire term(s) of service, including making regular and adequate progress toward the minimum total service hours.
● Attend all required Reading Corps sponsored training sessions, meetings, and coaching sessions; travel as necessary.

Secondary Functions
● Perform assignments and/or duties as assigned by Internal Coach, Master Coach, or Program Manager, excluding activities that would displace a staff member.
● Represent our programs at site-sponsored activities, meetings, (e.g. family night) and other community activities (such as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day). These may include evening and/or weekend hours.
