About

Early Literacy Program

A school-based program designed to help children who are reading below grade level.

Help children (grades 1 - 3, on a one-to-one basis) improve their reading, fluency and comprehension. All volunteers receive training.

All volunteers tutor at their assigned school during school hours. Participating schools are located in East Palo Alto, Los Altos, Menlo Park, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Portola Valley, Redwood City, Santa Clara, and Sunnyvale.

Tutors work one-on-one with two students (30 minutes each, back to back) twice weekly for a total of two hours per week during most of the school year. Most tutoring takes place during school hours on weekdays.
