America Reads Program
America Reads tutors provide tutorial support specifically and exclusively in reading for children in the public school in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Each tutoring session is guided by a teacher at the local school who has expertise in reading. Tutors will attend orientation and training sessions in September at JMU and on-going in-service sessions during the academic year.
