Make a Difference - Tutor a Child

Do you have an hour per week to help a struggling reader? Early elementary students are further behind than ever due to COVID learning disruptions. The Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC) knows how to teach them to read, and we need your help! Tutors work one-on-one with a K or first grade student at an Alexandria City Public School, once or twice a week in 30 minute sessions, October - May. Tutoring will occur in the schools during the school day. ATC provides training, materials and ongoing support. It's important to honor the year-long commitment because you really will become a Book Buddy and your student will look forward to seeing you every week.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC) is to help Alexandria City Public School students read on or above grade level by the end of kindergarten and first grade.


The Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC) is a non-profit organization that recruits and trains volunteers to tutor kindergarten and first-grade students who are deficient in reading skills. ATC works in partnership with the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS), Alexandria’s faith community, and the community at large.

Tutors work one-on-one with ACPS K and first grade students who have been identified as being in need of reading support. Tutoring takes place at school during school hours.

Volunteers may tutor once or twice a week. Once-a-week-volunteers may find their own partner or ask to be paired with another tutor to ensure the weekly commitment of two 30 or 40 minute sessions is met for each child.

All volunteers receive training from ATC. Tutors are provided with lesson plans and materials customized to each child's specific needs. Volunteers must attend training, provide information for a background check and commit to a full school year. Ongoing training and support are offered.
