Virtual Dyslexia Tutor

Do you have a passion for helping struggling students learn to read and spell?

Tutors work individually with students to complete the Barton Reading & Spelling System, an Orton-Gillingham based program. Nashville Dyslexia Center also contracts ALTA Certified Academic Language Practitioners and Therapists who use Take Flight. You will build a roster of students that you will work with long-term, creating meaningful relationships with your students and their families. We value hard work, integrity, and humility. This work is life-changing…. for the student AND the tutor!

Nashville Dyslexia Center’s mission is to provide hope and help for struggling readers by providing the very best individualized instruction by professional teachers.

Tutors set their own hours, but we strongly recommend setting aside after-school hours, Monday – Thursday 3:30-7:00 PM CST. Tutors must be able to commit to 8 hours per week for a minimum of one year. Summer and breaks are scheduled separately.

Some morning and daytime hours may be available.
