Reading Tutor for Whittier Elementary

Save to Favorites

Whittier School

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Tutors will help students to better their reading skills and help them to read at grade level by the end of the year.

Ideally, you would stay for 1 hour every Monday morning. You would come at 9:15 and stay until 10:25am. This will be every Monday, except for when there is no school.

I also need a few volunteers for 30 mins every Tuesday and Thursday. Starting at 12:10-12:55pm or starting at 1:30-2:10pm.

This is a great opportunity to help kids grow in their reading!
