Brimmer and May is seeking a committed, enthusiastic, and experienced in-person tutor for the 2023-2024 school year. This individual will provide individualized support to students with diverse learning profiles in grades K-6. Successful candidates should have experience providing direct instruction in decoding, spelling, fluency, reading comprehension, writing and study skills. Ideally, candidates should also have training and experience working with students who have language-based learning disabilities, as well as experience teaching students with executive functioning vulnerabilities. The candidate needs to be able to work collaboratively with teachers and communicate effectively with parents about student needs and progress, under the guidance of the Director of Lower School Academic Services. A master’s degree in special education and/or certification in Orton-Gillingham (or Orton-Gillingham based approach) is required.
