About

By tutoring for one hour a week, you can teach a disadvantaged preschooler many skills needed for kindergarten--including letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. At the same time, you will be modeling for their parent (who sits with their child) how to do the same.

We’ll train you and provide ongoing support to help you become an effective tutor.

School-readiness is the key to closing the achievement gap. Approximately 20% of U.S. students a year start kindergarten behind, and most stay behind. Over the past 3 years, Role Models have helped these children prepare for kindergarten. Already, one group of our Learners finished kindergarten at grade level.
