Literacy Tutor & Math Enrichment Tutor

California Reading Corps & Math Corps

About the organization

Reading Corps is a breakthrough program that is changing academic outcomes for thousands of students. With more than 1,500 tutors serving in twelve states and Washington D.C., Reading Corps is helping more than 36,000 children each year become successful readers. It combines the power of national service with literacy science to deliver proven approaches that help struggling learners transform into confident students - something that translates into all areas of their lives.

Math Corps trains tutors using the science of how students learn — and then it puts them to work to focus on boosting math skills. It’s a nearly impossible task for teachers to deliver individualized instruction to every student. But because that’s all Math Corps tutors do, they can personalize their approach and focus on what each student needs.

We are currently hiring AmeriCorps members to serve as part-time or full-time tutors in Stockton and throughout Fresno County. Positions start in August.
