Reading Heroes tutors help students develop grade-level literacy skills through one-to-one tutoring.

Each student is paired with a specific tutor for the duration of the semester, often longer.  Every Tuesday, from 6:00 to 7:30pm, they work together to complete lesson plans specifically designed for each student’s level.

The curriculum of Reading Heroes supplements the material students are taught in school, providing additional, focused help that can make all the difference in helping a child reach grade-level.

Along with the lessons, the relationships students build with their tutors is a significant help to their academic and emotional well-being. Tutors and students often build deep friendships with each other, giving tutors the ability to help instill confidence and growth in students.
