Reading & Math Tutor Program | St. Lawrence University Education

Reading & Math Tutor Program

The Reading & Math Tutor Program is designed to support local schools in raising the level of reading and math proficiency in students during a critical period of foundational knowledge building. St. Lawrence students spend 8 -12 hours per week working with K-6 students to help them develop fundamental math and reading skills. Tutors may also work with middle and high school students in reading, math, or another content area, as opportunities become available.

This program not only provides a benefit to the community, but it also provides a positive school experience for the tutor. St. Lawrence University students can discover whether teaching or working with young people is for them by becoming a Reading or Math Tutor for a semester or an academic year.

COVID-19 Update:  During the 2020-21 academic year, tutors will work with K-6 students completely online.  Additionally, tutors interested in working with middle and high school students will tutor remotely as part of a “homework helpline” during afterschool hours (e.g. 4-8 pm, Monday-Thursday).

Please check back on this site on Monday, September 7, 2020, for the updated new and returning tutor application links.  Tutors will be interviewed on a rolling basis from Monday, Sept. 7- Friday, Sept. 18, and orientation sessions will begin on Monday, September 21. The first week of tutoring will begin on Monday, September 28.
