Mission of program: WesReads/WesMath is a Wesleyan tutoring program whose mission is to provide support for higher-level learners in the areas of reading and math at Macdonough Elementary School and Farm Hill Elementary School in Middletown, CT.

Description of program: We help prepare students for their state exams. Most Wesleyan students read or do math with two to three elementary school children outside of the classroom. Some Wesleyan students provide assistance and supervision in the classrooms, and there is also an opportunity for volunteers to work with fourth and fifth graders on writing a book.

Since the inception of WesReads/WesMath in 2007, Macdonough students’ standardized test scores have increased significantly, allowing more students to access higher level classes in middle school.

Age group served: Elementary (grades 1-5)

Time commitment: Minimum 1 hour per week
