Reading Partners is a literacy nonprofit that mobilizes community volunteers to provide one-on-one tutoring to struggling elementary student readers.
No experience is required to volunteer! We seek volunteers who can commit to just 1 hour/week. Tutors are paired to work with the same student and are provided with an easy-to-follow curriculum that includes all of the books, worksheets, and step-by-step lesson plans to teach an effective lesson. Reading Partners also has a staff Site Coordinator who is available to support tutors at all times. Volunteers make an enormous impact: on average, students double their rate of learning while enrolled in the program.
Currently, we have a high need of tutors in our South and West Seattle Elementary schools (Sanislo Elementary, and Beverly Park Elementary). Available session times run from ~8:30AM – 3:00pm, Monday-Thursday.
