  • Preparing instruction that will support students who struggle with a particular skill

Work hours usually take place during the school day, on the school site, and may range from 3 hours a week to 10 hours a week, depending on the number of tutoring sessions.

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher, with specialized training in either reading intervention, literacy and writing, special education, or math education
