In 2019, the Alabama legislature passed the Alabama Literacy Act. The Alabama Literacy Act was established to improve the reading proficiency of public school kindergarten through 3rd grade students and ensure that those students are able to read at or above grade level by the end of the 3rd grade.
Starting in the 2022-2023 school year, kids will have to read on grade level by the end of third grade and pass a standardized test, or they will have to repeat that grade.
In order to help the students in our community, WIW will provide tutoring services for Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, & 3rd grade students in reading & math.Tutoring can be done either in-person or via. Zoom.
Tutoring has many great benefits, but some may not be able to afford it. Through fundraisers, donations, and grants our organization provides low cost, one on one tutoring that fits the needs of your child. We evaluate their progress ever 9 weeks to make sure they are progressing.
We also provide one-on-one tutoring services for grades 4-12 in math.
We choose only the best educators for our students. Safety is of the utmost importance, therefore all of our tutors have had background screenings.
Services available to students in the following counties: Morgan, Lawrence, Limestone, & Madison. Click below to apply. Space is limited.
