Saturday Program Academic Tutoring

Identifying how a student learns is the key to helping them understand the lesson a teacher is working to impart. There has been many changes in how the 3Rs are being taught over the last 30 years. Reading, writing, and arithmetic scores in public schools have been on the decline. There are multiple factors for this state. Still, the need to eliminate barriers and improve the quality of education for public schools in low-income communities of color is the primary goal of WEJ Foundation. The Saturday Program, held over summer vacation during the months of July and August, are taught by local college professors and industry professionals. The courses focus on mathematics, reading comprehension, social studies, government, geo-economics, and technology. We start with the basics and build up from there. By the way, we have fun too! There are recreational activities for students and families, visits to local businesses, college tours, and more.
