Literacy First is a tutoring program that focuses on early literacy. Literacy First tutors provide one-to-one tutoring to ensure all children are reading at or above grade level by 3rd 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, 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.
