STAIR TUTOR TRAINING
No previous tutoring or teaching experience? No problem!
At STAIR-Annapolis, we do everything possible to ensure a nurturing, positive environment not just for our students, but for our tutors, substitutes, and site coordinators, too.
It all starts with training.
Our user-friendly curriculum and training programs are easy to follow, with no outside prep time and no prior educational experience necessary.
We provide a mandatory two-hour training session for all new tutors that introduces our curriculum and the STAIR approach to literacy development. This comprehensive training will give you the tools you need to build a trusting, one-on-one relationship with your student, guide him or her through each tutoring session, and ultimately help that student become a stronger, more confident reader.
We also host several optional tutor workshops during the academic year where educators, reading specialists, and other professionals offer continuing education on a variety of topics to help tutors improve their approach and develop greater confidence during STAIR sessions.
Our students' achievements depend on the skill of our volunteers, and we are committed to fully preparing each and every STAIR tutor for success with our program.
