Using federal work-study funds, the SCALE America Reads program at UNC-CH places college student tutors in community centers and local middle/elementary schools to provide classroom support and individual attention to struggling and at risk students. The tutors provide consistent service to these sites by working with their learners at least twice a week in 40-minute sessions for 23 weeks during the academic year. Through continued training, tutor supervision, and evaluation coupled with teacher collaboration, our America Reads tutors strive to make a difference in their community while also increasing the literacy and mathematics skills of local youths.
