Literacy First is a tutoring program that focuses on early literacy. Literacy First tutors provide one-to-one tutoring to struggling readers in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade. We use explicit, research-based curriculum to address critical reading skills. All training and mentorship is provided by our supervisors and staff, who are literacy experts.
If a student is not successfully reading at grade level by the time they finish second grade, then they are four times more likely to drop out of high school. Literacy First tutors address this critical need for early literacy intervention in elementary schools across the Austin area.
