Reading & Math Tutor Program

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 other content areas, as opportunities become available.

This program not only provides a benefit to the community but 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: 

St. Lawrence County school districts are still determining requirements for in-person instruction for the 2021-22 school year.  As a result, tutors should plan to be flexible and willing to conduct in-person tutoring, online tutoring, or both as circumstances dictate. Masking and vaccinations will be required for anyone entering schools.  The coordinator will update tutors as events unfold.

The application window is now closed.  We are no longer accepting tutor applications for Spring 2022.

Orientation and mandatory training sessions will be held on:

  • Friday, February 4 (12-2 pm & 2:30-4 pm) 
  • Friday, Feb. 11 (12-2 pm & 2:30-4 pm)
