The America Counts tutoring program is a federally funded work-study program in which ICCE hires SF State students to tutor youth in K-8 public schools and after-school programs throughout San Francisco. The program focuses on elementary and middle school students who are struggling with their math skills, but tutors may be asked to tutor/facilitate in other areas such as reading, history, sports etc. There is no cost to community partner sites or to the parents of children being tutored. The goal of the program is to help build a strong mathematical foundation for students and in so doing, ensure greater college success and access to careers in a growing technological market.
