ABOUT TUTORS GALORE
Tutors Galore was a six year partnership between the University of Texas at Austin, AISD, the City of Austin Dept. of Health & Human Services, and TAP. Tutors Galore engages UT Work-Study Financial Aid students to serve as tutors for elementary school children from underprivileged backgrounds who are in need of additional assistance in core subject areas. During the 2008-2009 school year, 225 elementary school-aged children at two East Austin elementary schools received tutoring through TAP’s program. 93.9% of children who received tutoring improved their academic performance; 93.2% of the students demonstrated improved attitudes towards learning. 2,226 hours of tutoring services were delivered overall. Standardized test results (TAKS) and student grades also improved.
