READING CORPS TUTORS NEEDED AT THE PRIMARY!

Albertville Primary is looking for Reading Corps tutors

Have you ever considered changing a child’s life by helping them learn to read? 
 
 Albertville Primary has been awarded two Reading Corp tutor positions for the 2019 - 2020 school year. 

The program places trained AmeriCorps tutors in schools, where they work with children who are at risk for not reading at grade level. AmeriCorps tutors provide individualized research-based interventions and instruction directly to children.

Beginning in August, recruited members will receive training and serve for 11 months. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY!

The Perks of Being a Tutor

All tutors receive a stipend every two weeks, and an education award to pay for post-secondary education or to repay qualified student loans. Tutors who are 55+ may choose to gift their education award to their child, grandchild or foster child.

All tutors may receive federal student loan forbearance and interest repayment for qualified student loans. Tutors serving 35 hours are eligible to receive no-cost health insurance, and child care assistance is available based on family size and income.
