Reading Heroes (Tuesdays, 5:45-7:30pm)

This is a one-to-one reading and literacy tutoring program for students pre-k to 8th grade, designed to help students reach grade-level proficiency. As a tutor, you work with the same student each week, walking through a preset curriculum tailored to that specific student's needs.

Reading Heroes tutors can miss a maximum of 2 sessions a semester. This is in place to ensure consistency in tutoring but also to facilitate a stronger relationship between student and tutor.
