Tutor News – Fall 2023
By Sophia Wambach | October 3, 2023
You are back in the school with the kids!
After a busy summer planning for the 2023-2024 school year, Succeeding by Reading and Path2Math clinics resumed the week of September 17th, and you got to meet your new students. We look forward to working with all of you for another year, nurturing and enabling many more children to rise to their God-given potential.
Succeeding by Reading: Exciting Program Updates
Succeeding by Reading has been working hard to update our evidence-based literacy curriculum. We have streamlined our lesson plan to better highlight phonics as our foundation. These enhancements align with science of reading principles—”a preponderance of evidence that informs how proficient reading and writing develop; why some have difficulty; and how we can most effectively assess and teach and, therefore, improve student outcomes through prevention of and intervention for reading difficulties.”
Refresher training will be conducted at each clinic site as we launch.
Path2Math: Tutors Needed!
Path2Math is still recruiting and training new math tutors for the 2023 – 2024 school year. If you know someone who would make a great addition to the Path2Math tutoring team, please share this opportunity with them. With the right word to the right person, you can ensure more children receive critical one-on-one tutoring this year.

FamilyBridge: Homework Tutors Needed
Many parents and caregivers struggle to have enough time after work to provide critical homework support at home for their children. You can assist these families by providing one-on-one homework tutoring for the students in our reading and math programs. Homework tutoring is provided during the structured after-school programming that virtually all of the children in our reading and math programs attend. Tutoring opportunities are in-person, after school, at two of our clinic sites, Sankofa United and Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary Schools.
Time Commitment: 2 hours once a week, Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri between 3 – 5 p.m.; Wed between 2 – 4 p.m.
It’s not too late for YOU to be a tutor. Volunteer today, and you will give a child the one-on-one care they need to rise to their God-given potential.
