Coney Island ​Prep has teamed up with ​I​gnite​!​ ​R​eading to ​give in-school tutoring to students learning to read​.​ ​It’s a way ​for students to make up for ​some of the ​lost time ​we had during the pandemic​.​ ​T​he program requires ​just​ 15 minutes a da​y.

Ignite! is a nonprofit that pairs elementary students with a trained tutor who provides 15 minutes of one-on-one, individualized reading and literacy tutoring via Zoom. Jessica Sliwerski​, Founder of Ignite! Reading​: ​We can harness the power of virtual​, and​ we can use a tool like ​Z​oom to ensure that student​s each ​​​get the instruction that they need in order to become proficient readers​. So​ they transition out of the​ir​ classrooms into th​is ​designated space for ​Ig​nit​e!​ ​Reading​​, they​ log into ​Zoom, and they have a highly trained ​tutor who work​s​​ with them ​one-​on​-​one ​every​ day​. And they build this really powerful relationship around learning to read​.​ Ignite! is a nonprofit that pairs elementary students with a trained tutor who provides 15 minutes of one-on-one, individualized reading and literacy tutoring via Zoom.
