Curie Elementary seeks Volunteer Reading Tutors


From Kenway Hoey, EAR (Everyone a Reader) Program coordinator at Curie Elementary:

Would you like to see a child beam with joy after reading a book without difficulty?  Curie Elementary is planning to restart the reading program in January 2023.  The school is seeking volunteers to tutor students (grades 1-3) to improve their reading proficiency using the SD County’s Office of Education Everyone A Reader (EAR) program.

Volunteers will be assigned 4 students and work with them 15 minutes per session, twice/week on a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule with a 5 minutes transition time between students.  The time commitment is about 3 hours /week. 

A training period of 2 hours (by video) will be provided before tutoring the students.  A SDUSD volunteer application, a background check and a negative TB test or a completed questionnaire at the school nurse’s office will need to be completed.

Please contact Kenway Hoey at if you wish to help out with this program.  Thank you.
