Review for Reading Partners, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Reading Partners has a great model for partnering with schools and engaging significant numbers of volunteers in improving kids' reading skills. The curriculum takes tutors and students step-by-step through learning to read and improving their comprehension, based on staff assessment of the student's current reading skills. As I am not a teacher by training, I have really appreciated the curriculum and the support the staff provide. Volunteers work one-on-one with the same student each week during the school year, and I am grateful to have come to know some of these students.

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteer tutor for four years; member of local advisory board for less than one year.
