All About Tutoring

To become a JCL reading tutor, you must attend an initial three-hour training and orientation session. For the foreseeable future all tutoring will be conducted online through virtual learning platforms. No previous tutoring experience is necessary!


Volunteers typically work one-on-one with a child or provide read-aloud sessions for small groups. JCL reading tutors are asked to make a commitment of one-hour per week for the duration of the school year, but many find they wish to do much more!


Volunteers are also required to submit the following*:


  • Photo ID

  • Proof of Negative TB Test

  • Two Letters of Recommendation

  • Brief criminal background check


*More information will be provided at the training.
