Students who are strong readers by the end of third grade are positioned to be strong learners the rest of their lives. But in the United States, more than half our students reach fourth grade without learning to read proficiently. Together, we can change this! The amazing thing about our program - we train ordinary people to make an incredible impact as tutors.

TUTOR STORIES

“I learned English through one-on-one tutoring – I know it helped me. Individual tutoring sessions are often better for learners.”

“To see the excitement on a child’s face when they’ve been told they did a great job is my favorite part of serving.”

“I enjoy Mondays. When I start the day, the kids are excited to see me and share what happened over the weekend. It brings me such joy.”
