Reading Partners became part of the Tulsa educational landscape in 2013, when we first began placing community volunteers in low-income schools to help kids master basic reading skills. Our one-on-one tutoring model empowers students to succeed in reading and in life by engaging community volunteers to provide individualized, personal attention to each student in our program.
Today, only one in four Oklahoma fourth graders is reading at a proficient level and 36% lack even basic literacy skills. By partnering with parents, teachers, public schools, and community leaders in Tulsa, Reading Partners is poised to address Tulsa’s significant achievement gap.
We’re working together toward a future where all children have the individualized support they need to become strong readers and lifelong learners.
