Becoming a Tutor

Thank-you for your interest in becoming a tutor for the America Reads*America Counts program! Please read the full position description to learn more about the responsibilities and qualifications of tutors.  We have two types of positions available:

Work-Study Tutors

If you have been awarded work-study as part of your financial aid package you may choose MSU America Reads*America Counts as the way to earn your work-study award. We pay work-study students $11.00/hr and will work with your schedule to make sure that you earn as much of your award as possible while maintaining a schedule that is beneficial to you.  Work study tutors must commit to two semesters of tutoring (Fall and Spring).

Volunteer Tutors

Volunteers are an essential asset to our team, and we believe the MSU AR*AC program provides a great way for you to get involved in campus and community life. You may choose the amount of time you would like to volunteer, with opportunities ranging from 1+ hours per week and 1+ students at various grade levels. We ask that you commit to at least one full semester so that we can provide stability in our students’ tutoring experience.

How to apply

  1. Fill out the application.
