Tutoring Info from WCSD

Volunteer Academic (no-fee) Tutors


Volunteer Services provide academic tutors, as available, for students who need additional support.  Academic tutors are available for elementary, middle, and high school students supporting reading, math, writing, and science.  A referral is required from a teacher, counselor, or administrator.

Academic tutors must have a contact person at each school who will assist with tutoring logistics at the school and who will be available for indirect supervision during the tutoring.

All volunteers provided through Volunteer Services have been screened, cleared for volunteering with students and trained when available.  Any Volunteer Services referred tutor that is not acceptable due to ability,  dependability or conduct can be referred back to Volunteer Services for dismissal.

E.L. Cord Foundation

Center for Learning and Literacy


The E. L. Cord Foundation Center for Learning and Literacy focuses on tutoring elementary children from kindergarten to the eighth grade. We offer two reading programs throughout the academic year and one summer program. The clinic tutoring program is based in the Center; while the Reading Buddies program is based in local area schools.  Both tutoring programs are taught by UNR undergraduate students and supervised by UNR faculty.
