It calls on students to support teachers and help ensure that every child can read well and perform basic mathematical functions by the end of the third grade. Math tutors (America Counts) can also work with children through the ninth grade. Eligible and dedicated college students are called to serve as tutors, mentors, and role models. Students must be awarded Federal Work-Study as part of their financial aid offer to participate in this tutoring program.
