SEEKING A TUTOR FOR CRESTVIEW for the 2016/2017 SCHOOL YEAR

We are recruiting now for our Elementary Literacy Tutor who will serve at our school for 11 months, beginning in August. Tutors provide research-based interventions to Kindergarten – 3rd grade students one-on-one, who are just below proficiency in reading (Tier II children).
