Beacon Hill supplements school systems and prepares students and families for success by providing reading and math tutoring, parent education, college preparation, and enrichment activities for more than 1000 low-income high-risk African American and Hispanic students via in-school, after-school, virtual, and summer programs in South Dallas, TX and surrounding communities each year.
Our goal is to get all participants at grade-level proficiency or above in math and/or reading. We accomplish this via small-group tutoring for grades PK4-12 in in-school, after-school, summer, and virtual programs targeted primarily at low-performing schools and students in South Dallas and surrounding communities. Students receive individualized attention, achieve academic mastery in core subjects, and show demonstrable proof of applied learning that will ensure their academic success in middle school, high school, and beyond. Each student is assessed, followed by the development of a customized learning plan. Certified professionals, assisted by trained volunteers, provide two to three hours of weekly tutoring using integrated exercises, workbooks, and storybooks. Students develop self-discipline, focus, and ability as they progress at their own pace; promoting confidence in their own abilities.
Via regular student progress reports and parent education workshops.
