Ardmore Group Offers Free Tutoring

Posted: Updated:

ARDMORE, OK- - Summer break for most children is full of fun and games, but for some it's important to stay brushed up on their academic skills. One education group is helping students stay in the game academically this summer by offering free tutoring.  Meredith Saldana has more on this story.

The tutorials are being offered to any elementary aged students through high school aged, not just in the Ardmore area but for surrounding districts as well.     

The New Dimension Literacy Council will be putting on the sessions.     

This is the first time they've offered tutoring in the summer.     

Students will focus on Math, Reading, Spelling and English and the council will even supply the materials.            

The Literacy Council's Executive Director Carolyn Pirtle says keeping children involved with education through out the summer will help them be better prepared when school resumes in the fall.

"When children get out of school during the summer they sort of go backwards and we want to kind of keep their learning fresh on their mind. So when they go back to school they won't feel frustrated; they'll be competent and ready to go," says Pirtle.

The program is free thanks to the tutor who volunteers her time and a donation made by the Kiwanis group in Ardmore.     

The program is free and will start Friday morning at 10 am.     

It will be held in the annex building south of the Ardmore Public Library every Friday through out the summer.
