About Read to Succeed-MSU Student Literacy Corps

0732cf1e6ec73f7c888a6c2a0ce4a658effd237d

Read to Succeed is a program where the organization trains Michigan State students and community members to become tutors. They are then placed at one of our ten local tutoring sites (depending on their schedules) where they will be paired with one student to tutor twice a week for an hour each session throughout the semester. These children are at-risk in reading and writing skills (reading and writing below grade level) and most of the children we tutor could not otherwise afford tutoring. Read to Succeed is not a "homework assistance" program, we are working to improve lifelong reading and writing skills. Our organization works with eight Lansing schools, one East Lansing school, and the Capital Area District Library (which is our only evening site location). Our evening site is available to Tri-County Area students who do not have Read to Succeed offered at their home school. Tutors are required to go through five (5) hours of tutor training provided by the Program prior to working with a student.

Application Process

To apply to become a Read to Succeed tutor, please come during the first two weeks of fall semester, or the first week of spring semester, to our 347 Erickson Hall office. Office hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9:30 to 2:30, and on Thursday from 9:30 to noon. To learn more about Read to Succeed, email us at: literacy@msu.edu or come to our 347 Erickson Hall Office during semester office hours. To qualify for our program we ask that you have the desire and commitment to work with students that are struggling with reading and writing. We see this as rewarding opportunity to "change a student's life" for the better.
