Make a Difference in One Hour! – Tutors Needed to Inspire Struggling Young Readers (North Burien)

Reading Partners is a literacy non-profit that mobilizes community volunteers to provide one-on-one tutoring to struggling elementary student readers, and they’re looking for Tutors:

No experience is required to volunteer! We seek volunteers who can commit 1 hour/week for at least a semester.

  • Tutors are paired to work with the same student and are provided with an easy-to-follow curriculum to teach an effective lesson.
  • Reading Partners also has a staff Site Coordinator who is available to support tutors at all times.
  • Volunteers make an enormous impact: on average, students double their rate of learning while enrolled in the program.

Watch this 2-minute video to learn more about Reading Partners’ work in the community:

Currently, tutors are critically needed to work with students at Beverly Park Elementary in North Burien (1201 S 104th Street, Burien, WA 98168).

Available session times run from 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., Monday–Thursday.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Reading Partners’ Volunteer Coordinator, at, or call (206) 992-4484.
