READING POWER INC

So much of the success that children experience in Reading Power is due to the strong relationships that young children form with our tutors.

​Our volunteer tutors and professional staff are a diverse group of dedicated, educated, and passionate individuals. They come from all walks of life and share a love for reading and children.

Consistency creates a quality educational experience and builds confidence and trust. For that reason, we ask our tutors to make a solid commitment to whichever program they choose. Tutors commit to being on site at a school one day per week for 2-3 hours, depending on the program served. Programs are offered in the mornings and afternoons. We recognize that our tutors are volunteering their time and talents, and have developed a system to trade days with other tutors when "life" gets in the way of your plans.

A background check will be completed for each tutor. More information about prekindergarten, kindergarten, first grade and second grade programs may be found on our website. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age.
