Educate Me Now is our grass-root effort to fight youth and adult illiteracy one person at a time. Our CDC sets the highest standard for tutors. All of our tutors are Certified and currently employeed within school systems. They all complete background checks and love teaching other to excel intellectually and personally. We coach and tutor youth and adults throughout the week in our programs. Take a glace at our focus areas:
NOW ENROLLING NEW STUDENTS! FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO QUALIFYING FAMILIES. NOW HIRING CERTIFIED TEACHERS.
In the U.S., 30 million people over age 16 — 14% of the country’s adult population — don’t read well enough to understand a newspaper story written at the eighth grade level or fill out a job application. 43% of adults with the lowest literacy rates in the United States live in poverty. Adult low literacy can be connected to almost every socio-economic issue in the United States.
Many middle and high school students across the state and nation aren’t reading at a proficient level. More than 70% of Tennessee’s eighth-graders read at or below the basic level of proficiency for that grade, according to a report by the Tennessee Comptroller’s Offices of Research and Education Accountability.
