Reading as part of Carroll Reads
Reading one-on-one provides great leaps in reading fundamentals

Carroll Reads is a federally-funded tutoring program aimed at helping children in Elementary grades refine reading and skills. Carroll Reads began as a pilot program in spring 2010. It is modeled after the America Reads program, a national grassroots tutoring program. America Reads was founded in 1997 and though the program is now archived, there are still active America Reads chapters throughout the country with new ones being formed on a regular basis.

This fall semester, all Carroll Reads tutoring will be held online through Zoom with Marion-Sterling Elementary.  

For more information or to apply for a tutoring position, please email carrollreads@jcu.edu, call 216.397.4698, or stop by the CSSA office in AD 32. Tutors must qualify for Federal Work Study to be paid.

“Having additional tutoring help allows students who are in need of one-on-one attention an opportunity to work with someone who is there just to support them. Outside of tutoring, our volunteers also serve an important mentoring/role modeling function.”
