What is work study with the Riverways team?

Work study with the Riverways team is a program where UW students tutor weekly for the school year at target schools in Seattle. Tutors focus on reading and math skills with elementary and middle school students, and build strong relationships with kids by making a commitment to their tutoring site for the remainder of the academic year. Tutors support the Seattle Public Schools effort to promote educational equity for all students, with a focus on under-resourced schools. Riverways tutors that are work-study eligible are paid for their tutoring hours.

What are the benefits?

  • Earn $16-18 per hour for work-study eligible students
  • Gain experience in an innovative elementary reading initiative
