HELPS One-on-One

High-impact tutoring is one of the few proven strategies to help children get back on track with reading.

One of the local tutoring organizations that Read Charlotte partners with is HELPS (Helping Early Literacy with Practice Strategies), an evidence-based program proven to improve children’s reading fluency. We coordinated its introduction in Mecklenburg County in 2018, and then the Helps Education Fund took on the primary role in managing the program. 

Today, HELPS continues to work with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to provide tutoring to local students.
