read, write, THRIVE!

Our tutoring programs focus on basic reading and writing skills, job skill building, empowering parents to help their children, and immigrants prepare for citizenship.

Your knowledge of basic literacy, our training, and a devotion to 2-3 hours weekly for 9-12 months are all that are required to get started as a tutor.
