After School Tutoring for the 2020-2021 School Year
Students reading six months or more below grade level work one-to-one with a volunteer tutor for one hour, after school, each week. Through literacy tutoring, students gain confidence and establish a rapport with their tutor. They also build skills in comprehension, fluency, word decoding, and writing. Tutoring sessions offer the opportunity to focus on personalized literacy and learning needs. Tutoring is free to families, thanks to our volunteers who donate their time.
If your child or student has attended our tutoring program in previous academic years, please complete the application below and we will begin the matching process.

Tutoring helps build confidence, motivation, and skills
“When our daughter was just beginning 2nd grade, she was struggling with reading. She was frustrated and fought every night just to get through a low level book. After a year of working with the staff at Teton Literacy Center, she scored above the second grade goal on the Dibels Test. Her success can be any child’s success with resources like those available at TLC."
-The Gambler Family
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."
- James Radda, Tutor
