80% of K-5th grade students enrolled in the free one to one
after-school tutoring program can read at grade level
after one year of individualized tutoring.
In 2010-11, TLC had a 55% increase in students
served through K-5th grade after-school tutoring.
The cost to tutor one student for one year is $1,000.
TLC builds confidence and instills a love of learning in struggling readers.
“My child’s test scores have improved tremendously and her overall attitude about reading is much better. I don’t have to fight her to read anymore.”
-Parent of 1st grader in tutoring program
Tutoring provides the opportunity to build relationships with community leaders.
“It is very gratifying to see my student’s skills improve… Some kids need the kind of individualized attention that schools simply cannot provide. Also, middle and high school students sometimes do better with a non-parent tutor.
-James Radda, Tutor
