Academic Skill-Building program for K-8th grade children with an ASU tutor
The ASU America Reads Program partners with local schools and community centers to offer tutoring, mentoring, and academic skill-building services to children living in low income areas or attending Title I schools. Children are matched with an ASU student as their academic tutor and college role model. ASU students eligible for Federal Work Study funds may apply for a paid America Reads tutor position or students enrolled in an ASU University Service-Learning (USL) class may select America Reads as their community service placement.
Kindergarten through 8th grade children receive one-on-one tutoring with an ASU student, responsible for facilitating interactive educational activities that correspond to Arizona College & Career Readiness Standards in reading, writing, and math. Assistance with homework is also provided.
Middle School Tutoring Program
Middle school-aged children (6th - 8th grade) receive one-on-one tutoring in academic skill-building and homework assistance from their ASU tutor. Tutors also foster life skills development (such as time management and positive decision making), positive self-esteem, job skills, and college-going expectations.
