Evening Reading Tutor at Littera Education

Evening Virtual Reading Tutor

Location: US National – Contract – remote


Littera Education is looking for passionate virtual reading tutors to support learners in grades K-8 starting in January 2023. Tutors can be located in any time zone but must have availability between 4 pm-8 pm EST.

Are you ready to be part of an amazing fully remote team helping students succeed?

Do you enjoy supporting students and developing their understanding of reading?

Are you interested in providing the high-quality tutoring support students need?

At Littera Education, our mission supports equitable, high-quality tutoring working with students in school districts across the United States. Our high-dosage tutoring model pairs students with the same tutor for 2-3 sessions a week. Tutoring takes place 1:1, or in small groups, during the school day or after school. Sessions are typically 30, 45, or 60 minutes. For this role, we are looking for tutors with availability between 4:00pm-8:00pm EST. However, as a Littera tutor, you will have the flexibility to choose when you are available to tutor and the grade levels that you would like to tutor. You could tutor for one or multiple schools.

Please note this is a contract remote position and is not full-time. This role is perfect for you if you are interested in earning supplemental income with a flexible schedule. We do not guarantee a set number of hours per week.

Once you are matched to students and assigned a schedule, we ask that you commit to that schedule in order to provide the student(s) with a consistent tutoring experience and to build a strong tutor:student relationship. We know there are times when you might need a sub – and we have a sub team ready to step in!
