STAIR tutor training sessions are held at St. Andrew's Chalstrom House in the fall and spring and a variety of other locations throughout the greater New Orleans area.
If you love reading and enjoy working with young children then you have the only two requirements needed to become a STAIR tutor. The STAIR tutoring program is set up for volunteers with a broad variety of backgrounds. Many of our STAIR tutors do not have an education background but only one training class is needed to acquaint volunteers with STAIR’s professionally designed, user-friendly curriculum.
Once the tutor is trained, s/he give one or two afternoons (MW or TuTh) or one Saturday morning a week for fun one-on-one interactive sessions with second grade students. Each site has a specially trained Site Director who works with the tutors and students to ensure a successful tutoring experience for all.
