Pros: reward of helping students in need
Cons: unpaid internship
Reading Partners recruits volunteers from anywhere and anyone that is willing to go through shadow sessions and training to fully grasp the scope of the curriculum. Each tutor meets with a student twice a week for 45 minutes. During these 45 minutes tutors go through the lesson plan written by reading partners. I had the privilege of tutoring a few students. I also substituted for other tutors when they weren't able to make their sessions since I was already at the school helping out my cite coordinator with anything she needed to be done. I made copies of the lessons for each lesson plan. I corrected students work and also filled them into their folders. My site coordinator was very welcoming, I really enjoyed my time there and would recommend volunteering to anyone.
