Step 1 – Call

Step 2 – Attend Student Orientation
Meet with a Project Read staff member to learn about program requirements, fill out paperwork, and set individual goals. Project Read charges a $10 annual commitment fee and a $20 refundable book fee.
Step 3 – Take Placement Test
There is a series of two (for native English speakers) or three (for non-native English speakers) tests students must take upon entry to the program. All students are given a Locator Placement test (45 mins) and a Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) (90 mins) to determine ability in reading, language and math. Non-native English speakers also take an English Proficiency test (30 mins) to assess their ability to understand English.
Step 4 – Attend Lab
Before being paired with a tutor, students must complete 4 hours (2 sessions) of lab. After pairing, students are expected to continue lab attendance 3 hours each week.
Once students have been assessed and their lab hours are completed, they are paired with a tutor based upon availability. Once a suitable match has been made, the tutor and student will meet in a new pair meeting overseen by a staff member to arrange a time and place to meet each week. Materials are assigned based on the student’s needs, abilities, and goals.
Step 5 – 1-1 Tutoring
Students commit to 3 hours of one-on-one tutoring (and 3 hours of lab) per week for at least 6 months. Once paired, tutors and students begin meeting for their one-on-one tutoring sessions at an arranged time and at any public place.
