Pairing struggling students with an AmeriCorps member who can serve them throughout the year increases academic performance, boosts confidence and gives kids a chance to succeed.
Our AmeriCorps members:
- Deliver one-on-one and small group tutoring with fidelity in math and literacy (3-5 times per week for 20-45 minutes per session).
- Support students performing below the 33rd percentile of their grade level.
- Are trained in evidence-based intervention techniques before they start serving in schools and receive ongoing professional development and intervention training throughout the school year.
- Work closely with teachers and Response to Intervention teams to make sure they are implementing complementary instruction to students.
