Reading Partners is a national literacy non-profit with a strong affiliate here in Dallas. We provide one-on-one personalized literacy instruction to help students reading 6 months to 2.5 years behind grade level. We empower the community to make a positive change and transform each child’s reading experience. Our model is research-based and outcome oriented. Research has shown 83% of fourth graders from low-income families are reading below grade level. For every month with RP, our students typically gain 1.6 months of reading skills. We are working to make literacy a national priority so that every child can reach his or her full potential through the joy and power of reading!
So many people have been asking, so I have been practicing how to offer the above description of where I work word-for-word. With a few more practices, I should be able to quote it in my sleep! Are you interested in being one of our wonderful volunteer-tutors : ) Please see here.
