Academic Tutoring provides one on one tutoring to students in a variety of reading, language arts and mathematics foundations related to literacy. Pre-service teachers from Birmingham Southern and dedicated volunteers deliver structured reading, mathematics, and social studies content to students in kindergarten through fifth grades under the joint-supervision of their professor and a Better Basics Program Coordinator.


Teacher Comment…

“My students have more self-confidence, attempting to write their name, participating more; tremendous growth; they are doing so much better!”

Parent Comment…

“Before tutoring my daughter did not want to read and it was a struggle to try and encourage reading. However, when she began tutoring she bonded with her tutor and referred to her tutor as a friend, she wanted to read at home and took delight in reading to me.”
