Thank you for your interest in supporting Teller Tigers teachers and students!
Teller Tutors has been going strong for about three years now. The goal is to help our kinder teachers close the equity gap in early literacy. Since the program's inception, the percentage of students exiting kindergarten below or significantly below grade level has noteably dropped. The kinder teachers would love to continue this program for the coming school year, and we would love you to be a part of it!
The goal is for idenified students to receive strategic tutoring once a day, every single day. Therefore, our ask of volunteers is a once-a-week commitment on a designated day for the entirity of the school year.
Teller Tutors need you to commit to one hour a week from 9-10am. Required training is Sept 25th at 3:45 with a start date the week of Sept 30th.
Guys Read is for targeted boys in 3rd/4th/5th grades and will run 7:15-7:55 starting the first week of Nov. We will schedule a short training in Oct. If I get a ton of volunteers, I would love to start a group for the boys who just love reading!
Additionally, all tutors need to pass a background check.
