Albuquerque Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring Program
One child, one reading mentor – two lives forever changed.
Join our Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring team today! Our volunteer reading mentors help elementary students enlarge their world by exposing them to a love of books. Reading mentors commit to spending one hour, one day a week to mentor K-4 students in one-on-one sessions for a school year. We volunteer in Albuquerque, Belen, Bernalillo, and Rio Rancho Public Schools.
“There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book. ” –Frank Serafini

Comments from the 2019 survey from teachers and principals at Albuquerque Public Schools
“Our tutor has been a wonderful asset to the classroom. The children she directly works with are greatly impacted and have made wonderful progress. Students are always engaged and excited to work with her. She is highly organized, reliable, and has a wealth of knowledge. Students that do not directly work with her enjoy seeing her, saying hello, and visiting with her.”
“I referred one student that has skyrocketed in her reading scores. She looks forward to seeing her tutor each week.”
“My student really needed the one-on-one attention, and the tutor gave her that. My student has thrived this year, and she continues to make academic gains in all areas.”
“My students that were tutored were very shy and not very confident about their academics. Students are excited to share their stories with their tutor and have shown great progress in self-esteem and overall academic performance.”
“The students in my room who have Oasis tutors love when they arrive at the classroom to get them. Each of them has improved confidence and has improved in reading and writing skills. This is a tremendous asset to our school and I will definitely include Oasis tutors in my classroom in future years!”
“My student really enjoys his time with Mrs. S. He smiles when she arrives at the door to pick him up. He smiles and shares what they did together when he returns. Your organization is wonderful, and I have been happily utilizing your tutors for 3 years now. I hope to be involved with you again next school year.”
“I love the relationships that I see develop between the students and the tutors. I see it again and again. The tutors go out of their way to find things that bring connections to their students. It makes the students feel so special to have someone think about them and visit them. This time is so special for them.”
“All of our students tutored made significant gains!”
“We love having Oasis tutors at our school. Our students really benefit from the Oasis tutors. We currently have 10 students on a waiting list…”
