Reading Quest, a local non-profit, provides professional support for children who need help with reading. During the school year, we tutor during the school day, afterschool, and Saturdays; in the summer we host our Reading is Magic camps.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, part time reading specialist to work in person at Santa Fe Public Schools, West Las Vegas Public Schools and at our magical reading center. We are looking for someone who has experience working with children in grades 1-8 and truly enjoys empowering them to learn how to read using structured literacy phonics and reading games.
