Do you think reading and writing are important to our quality of life? Do you enjoy the company of children? Are you interested in sharing your love of reading with a child who may be a reluctant reader" Are you able to share one hour a week with a child to be a tutor, mentor and friend?
If you answered "yes", please consider being a tutor to a our child in our schools who needs help developing reading and language skills. Through the OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program, volunteers, schools and OASIS work together to help young children build reading skills and positive attitudes towards learning.
Volunteers work one-on-one with a child, during the school day, as a tutor, mentor and friend. With this individual attention, the volunteers are able to build the child's self-esteem as positive attitudes toward learning while strengthening reading and language skills.
Tutors receive 12 hours of initial training and continuing support through regular tutor meetings where they can share experiences, solve problems build friendships.
OASIS tutoring opportunities are available in all of our elementary schools. Tutors are matched with students in grades K-3. Tutor training is available twice each year. Tutors are required to complete training before being placed in a school.
