Read Write Discover is actively recruiting interested high school students to tutor for Summer 2019 at 11 library branches across the South Bay and San Francisco!
What are the expectations of a RWD tutor?
Tutors are granted tremendous responsibility in their volunteer work with their learners. The learners are matched with tutors in either one-on-one tutoring or in groups of 3-4. Prior to the program’s start, all tutors are provided training in the program’s operation, literacy tutoring skills, and working with youth. Tutors prepare lesson plans for their learners based in reading, writing, and reading comprehension. Common activities include writing assignments, vocabulary, arts and crafts, tests, discussions, and more. Because tutors work with the same learner(s) week after week, they are able to develop mentorship relationships with their learners and serve as role models!
What are some examples of the duties of a Tutor?
- Attend < 95% of the RWD Program sessions

- Maintain constant communication with Program Coordinators
