Teens Earn $15/hour to Tutor Elementary Students

Summer Job Opportunity Enables Teens to Earn Living and Improve Children’s Lives

READ USA is hiring!

READ USA’s Literacy Tutoring Program will kick-off again this summer from June-July at Duval County Public Elementary Schools, providing an ideal opportunity for teens who are passionate about their community to earn a $15/hour living while improving the educational futures – and lives – of elementary students.

Do You Want to Change Lives? Watch How:

“We’re trying to build up their confidence, in not only reading, but also learning in general. [Tutoring] helps you to not only shape the lives of the kids you’re helping, but also shape your own.”

- Jamilah, READ USA teen tutor




How Literacy Tutoring Works:

Teen tutors use pre-written lesson plans to deliver high-quality reading lessons to help elementary students improve their literacy skills. READ USA provides extensive training, onboarding, on-site support, and resources to teen tutors. Tutors have one-on-one access to supervising teachers during all tutoring sessions, who oversee, coach, and guide tutors in lesson delivery.

Who We Want:

  • Teens aged 16-19 (high school or early college) who live nearby summer tutoring sites, including the Northside, Arlington, Southside, and Urban Core areas.
  • Teens with the ability to work Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays every week from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. from June 12th to July 21st.

Teen Tutors Can Expect:

  • $15/hour for 20 hours of work per week.
  • Transportation (if needed) to and from the selected elementary school.
  • To participate in two onboarding and training sessions (training and onboarding required and tutors are paid for the training session):
    • Training Day 1 is offered June 5th or June 10th
    • Training Day 2 is offered June 6th or June 11th
  • To pass a national Level II background check and drug screen.
