Elementary Literacy Tutors

North Dakota Reading Corps is seeking tutors to help kindergarten through third grade students succeed in school by giving them the extra support they need in learning how to read.

We are looking to place tutors at elementary schools in Jamestown. Tutors work one on one with students for 20 minutes a day. This part-time position requires a commitment for the entire school year, 5 days a week. Tutors work during the school day while school is in session. As an AmeriCorps tutor, you will receive a living allowance of about $600 monthly for reduced half-time (20 hours/week) / $400 monthly for quarter time (15 hours/week), an education award of $2,150 (RHT)/$1,493 (QT) to be used for college tuition and current student loans. Tutors who are 55 or older may choose to transfer their education award to a child, grandchild or foster child.

Interested candidates must apply through the www.ndseec.com/readingcorps. Jamestown Public Schools will not transfer applicants from this website. Training is scheduled for August 11-13, 2014. The position begins at the start of the school year. Send questions to Jolene Garty at gartyj@ndseec.com or call 701-446-3173.
