Meet Tutors at SCUSD Serna Center Wednesday 6-7:30 p.m.

Sacramento -- Meet tutors participating in SCUSD's "No Child Left Behind" FREE (we like FREE) tutoring program at Wednesday's 2012-2013 Free Tutoring Provider Fair at the Serna Center, 5735 - 47th Ave. 95824, from 6 - 7:30 p.m.

How Free Tutoring Works

Funded by the federal "No Child Left Behind" program, free tutoring is available to assist students from Kindergarten through 12th grade who attend schools where student grades need improvement.  If your child's test scores need a boost -- and your family's income level qualifies -- this free tutoring program may be available where a tutor works one-on-one with your child to improve his or her test scores with English Language Arts, Reading, Math and Science.

How Your Child Qualifies for Free Tutoring  

Your child's school must qualify for participation in this program.
