Ardmore Community Tutoring (ACT) is an America Counts and America Reads federally funded work-study program developed as a partnership between Civic Engagement and the local community through the Spring Avenue Generational Educational Services (SAGES) and Zion Baptist Church in Ardmore, Pa.
The program helps elementary school, middle school, and high school students improve their reading and math skills. In addition to providing homework help, the program empowers children through academic enrichment and actively engages them in their own education.
Tutors assigned to ACT will work one-on-one with one or two tutees who live in the Ardmore community area and attend elementary or middle schools in the Lower Merion and Haverford Township School Districts.
Four to six hours per week.
There are many different ways in which a tutoring session may be spent; the primary focus of the session is to work with the child to complete their homework. Following homework time, activities for each session are planned by the tutor in advance.
