What is Read2Me?

Read2Me is a unique tutoring program where trained volunteers work with striving 1st-3rd grade students to improve their reading comprehension skills and nurture a life-long love of reading. Watch a video about Read2Me here!

  • Tutors meet one-on-one with students for one 45-minute session each week
  • Sessions are held at several Tacoma Public Schools during school hours
  • On-site coordinators provide support
  • Tutors learn teaching methods and learning outcomes that mirror the curriculum of each child’s classroom
  • Tutors stay with the same child for the entire school year to aid with relationship-building
