Reading Power provides one-to-one literacy tutoring for children in prekindergarten through second grade.

The focus of the prekindergarten program is oral language development through high-quality literature and conversation. Throughout the school year, highly trained tutors, under the guidance of educational professionals, are in the classrooms two to three times per week reading to children, sharing rich conversations, and fostering a love of literacy. The individual attention students receive from caring adults is a key component of our program's success.

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 the prekindergarten program may be found on our website. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. Please apply on our website: https://readingpowerinc.org/tutors/
