Reading Tutor at Club 21 Learning and Resource
Pasadena, CA, 91101
About the job
Club 21 is a Learning and Resource Center for individuals with Down Syndrome. We have a program called Every Child A Reader(ECAR) that is 1:1 reading tutoring for students Kindergarten-High School. We are looking for tutors to join this program.
ECAR is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Tutors can sign up to tutor on one or both days. ECAR meets from 4:30-5:30. The first 45 minutes is your 1:1 tutoring time. The last 15 minutes, all the students are together debriefing while you meet with the parent and go over what was covered during your session. We advise tutors to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to prepare your materials and then we have a short tutor debrief from 5:30-5:45. So total commitment would be 4:00-5:45 or 6:00 each day you tutor. Club 21 has many reading resources so it is not your responsibility to provide those, but just have them prepared. for your sessions.
Qualifications: In College or Above. Club 21 is will train all tutors. Previous work with individuals with Disabilities is a plus, but not a requirement. We are looking for those who can make a 6-8 week commitment at a time. Our ECAR Dates are below.
