Welcome to Reads and Counts Program

Tutors. Mentors. Leaders.

Here at Texas A&M University, Reads & Counts tutors are part of a long-standing institutional commitment to community service. The program began in association with the America Reads Challenge, a federal initiative to increase child literacy rates across the nation. 

 

Approximately 200 Aggies work at 26 locations throughout Bryan and College Station, tutoring elementary students in reading and math. Tutors make a huge impact on our community, as over 95 percent of public elementary school students in B/CS have the opportunity to work with a Reads & Counts tutors. However, it is not only the elementary students who benefit from tutoring; Aggies gain valuable work experience, have opportunities for advancement to leadership positions and receive financial aid they have been awarded in the form of work study.

 

What do we think it means to be a tutor?

 

"A Reads & Counts tutor is a member of the Reads & Counts community who dedicates time to making a lifelong impression by acting as a mentor and serving others, while simultaneously experiencing personal and professional development."
