Academic Skill-Building program for K-8th 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 1 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 a University Service-Learning(USL)vclass may select America Reads as their community service placement.
Kindergarten through 8th grade children receive one-on-one tutoring with an ASU student who is responsible for facilitating interactive educational activities that correspond to the Common Core Standards in reading, writing, and math as well as assisting that child with homework and reading skills.
Middle School Tutoring Program
Middle school-aged children (6th - 8th grade) receive one-on-one tutoring in academic skill-building and homework assistance with their ASU tutor, as well as life skills development such as time management, positive decision making, self-esteem, job skills, and college-going expectations.
