Neighborhood Tutoring Program
This program helps students in grades 2nd-12th achieve grade-level competency in reading and math through one-on-one attention and a structured, step-by-step curriculum. Frequent tests help ensure that a student has mastered the material in one lesson before moving on to the next. When students are guided at their own pace and engaged through fun and interesting activities, they gain academic skills and confidence in their ability to learn.
On average, after just 28 hours of FLOC tutoring, students gain one year in grade-level equivalency in both reading and math.
