IUPUC education students tutor, teach, and learn through collaborations with a number of local and national partners.
You can work as a tutor in local classrooms helping elementary-aged students to become better readers. Tutors work with Early Steps, Reading Recovery, or even Accelerated Reader programs.
The America Reads Challenge began in 1997, when President Clinton set aside $2.75 billion for the program. Any college student who receives Federal Work-Study support may participate. In order to be eligible, you must:
- Take a minimum of 12 credit hours with a 2.5 GPA or better.
- Complete a criminal history check.
- Sign in and keep a time sheet of hours worked. Original time sheets will be mailed to your school supervisor. You will furnish envelopes, stamps, and address labels.
Principals typically interview applicants before they are hired to work in a particular school. You may need to prepare a resume. Apply now!
