Every parent wants their child to succeed academically and socially. For over 30 years, Oasis has partnered with school districts across the country to provide in-person intergenerational tutoring in schools to help students build confidence and experience success in literacy. As a response to Covid-19 we are now offering another option– personalized online literacy tutoring for your child at home or wherever they may be learning.
Oasis Tutors are older adult volunteers trained to help students improve their academic performance, and more importantly, embrace the wonder of reading and writing. Tutors model reading and build literacy skills with children in kindergarten – third grade utilizing a curriculum developed exclusively for Oasis by educators. These volunteer tutors strive to reach the following literacy goals with your child:
- Promote motivation, success and enjoyment of reading, writing and oral communication
- To assist in developing language, build vocabulary and expand background knowledge
- Increase the confidence and self-esteem of students
