Do You Want Reading Tutors?

  • Woodring College of Education at WWU has several students with work study awards who are seeking Reading Tutor opportunities in elementary classrooms.
  • Reading Tutors are WWU students who have work study funding as part of their financial aid awards.
  • Tutors will perform duties related to developing literacy skills. For example, Tutors can read to groups of students, one-on-one, or listen as students read back to them.
  • Reading Tutors can also help with writing assignments tied to reading projects.
  • Please note that Reading Tutors are not eligible to perform general teacher assistant or administrative duties.
  • Teachers decide if and when they want a tutor scheduled for their classroom. We do ask that teachers provide a stable and consistent weekly work schedule for the tutors. A steady weekly schedule will help tutors organize their time commitments.

If you would like to have WWU work study students in your classroom, please contact the coordinator below with the following information:

  • Tentative availability for reading tutors. You can negotiate the actual work schedule with the tutor; however, your tentative schedule will serve as a starting point to find students with schedules that match your needs.
  • Preferred method of contact (Email, phone, etc.)
  • Your school
  • Your grade level
  • Number of WWU students needed
