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

A tutor puts the smile of learning on the faces of eager young children.

Updates to our evidence-based literacy curriculum highlight phonics as the foundation.

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.”

Training Dates

Refresher training will be conducted at each clinic site as we launch.

Will you complete HER Circle of Care?

Your gift to the 2023 Fall Matching Campaign will help close the circle of care for an eager young child. Give today, and your donation will be DOUBLED.

Path2Math: Tutors Needed!

Path2Math student and tutor celebrate with a fist bump.

Math tutors needed. We provide all of the training, materials, and support. You provide the care and love.

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.

Training Dates: New Tutor Training



Family empowerment provides parents the right tools.

After-school homework tutors support these families by providing one-on-one homework tutoring for second and third-grade students in our reading and math programs.

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.

Yes, I can empower a child to become a lifelong learner.

 I want to learn more about online reading or math clinics to see if in-school tutoring is right for me!

I want to help fund Children Rising tutoring and mentoring programs to empower more children this year!
