About

JustREAD provides one-on-one remedial tutoring in English literacy to struggling elementary, middle, and high school students. We serve students who are performing below grade level and/or are English language learners. They thrive on the personalized attention to their academic needs, a structured tutoring environment, and the dedication of caring, volunteer tutors.

We provide one-on-one tutoring, as well as in-classroom tutoring on campus DURING THE SCHOOL DAY at several schools in Mountain View. Tutors receive training and on-going support from a Site Coordinator or teacher in the classroom. Students have individualized lesson plans and instructional materials tailored to their needs.

New tutor orientations are held on an ongoing basis. Sign up for one here:

We request a minimum commitment of one hour per week between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. during the school year.
