Sophomore Skills Program
The SAT remains one of the major gateways to college, but many students lack the fundamental academic skills to tackle the test. The Sophomore Skills program is designed to provide intensive tutoring in math, reading and writing, which will help students not only excel on the SAT, but also on Regents exams and in their core classes. This year, over 150 volunteers at 10 schools and community centers will empower more than 300 students to improve their chances of getting into the college of their choice.
During the spring semester, volunteers work with sophomores who are planning to take the SAT in their junior year. Volunteers have the option to tutor either math or reading and writing, and commit to tutoring once a week from late February through May. Volunteers new to the program must attend a 2-hour tutoring strategies training at the New York Cares office. Click here to sign up for training today.
