Gainesville Reads program returning to Northeast Georgia History Center

By Lauren Hunter Multimedia Journalist

Northeast Georgia History Center staff are bringing back their Gainesville Reads program this fall.

With the return of the program, staff are accepting new students and tutors for the Fall 2021 to Spring 2022 session. 

Gainesville Reads is a free program available to students in first through fifth grades, according to information sent from History Center staff. The program offers one-on-one tutoring sessions with students who struggle with reading and live in Hall County or the surrounding area. 

Tutors meet with students once a week and tailor the program to each student's needs. All tutors undergo a background check, interview process and tutor training.

Each one-on-one tutoring session lasts one hour and is broken down into four parts: reading, Lexia, workbook and play. At the end of each session, students are invited to participate in a thirty minute group adventure game.

In addition to in-person tutoring sessions, virtual tutoring sessions are available to students who are either on the wait list for a tutor or prefer a virtual format. Students are led by a trained virtual tutor during these sessions and also play the adventure game.

Tutoring sessions take place Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week from 4:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m., with the adventure game immediately after the sessions end. The first sessions will take place the week of Aug. 11 and wrap up the week of May 25. Gainesville Reads follows the academic calendar and holidays of the Gainesville City and Hall County school systems.

Students are evaluated at the end of the school year to determine if they should continue in or graduate from the program.

Volunteers interested in applying to become a tutor can fill out an application here. More information about the Gainesville Reads program is on the Northeast Georgia History Center website.
