Help a child today, for tomorrow
Share your love of reading as an Oasis tutor
You can change a life by providing the individual attention that helps children build confidence and experience success.
Oasis works in partnership with school districts to pair volunteer tutors with children in grades K-3 who teachers feel would benefit from a caring, one-on-one mentoring relationship.
One child, one tutor, one school year. Two lives forever changed.
Celebrating 30 Years of Tutoring
Choose your city from the list of tutoring locations and complete the form to sign up. Once you have completed training, you will meet with the same child at least once a week for the school year. Your student and his or her teacher will of course understand time away for vacation, illness or other unforeseen events.
No. Your enthusiasm, patience and compassion are far more important. As a tutor your roles include mentor, friend and role model.
The program is designed for children in kindergarten through third grade, a critical period for developing reading and language skills.
You may choose one of our participating schools where you prefer to tutor. Your school district’s Oasis facilitator will help you find a time during the school day for your weekly tutoring sessions.
Tutors complete 10-12 hours of training based on a proven six-part plan of activities that include talking, reading and writing. You’ll learn ways to draw out the child’s experiences and create simple stories that form the basis for reading activities. You may also attend monthly tutor meetings for continued training and opportunities to share your successes and challenges with other tutors.
