ABOUT THE LSF

The Latino Student Fund (LSF) was founded in 1994 to address disparities in access to education for underrepresented students in Washington, DC, and has since served more than 4,000 youth across its programs.

Our Mission

Provide opportunities for a strong academic foundation for underserved PreK-12th grade students and their families to promote higher education and professional leadership. The organization provides year-round, out-of-school-time programs for low-income, at-risk students and their families with the goal of increasing levels of educational attainment in the community.

WHAT IS THE TUTORING PROGRAM?

Since 1998 the Latino Student Fund’s Tutoring Program provides free support and academic assistance to Washington metropolitan area students to ensure their academic success. The Latino Student Fund (LSF) rapidly and successfully adapted the in-person Saturday one-on-one tutoring program to an exclusively online format as a result of social distancing requirements during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Tutoring program reinforces math and English skills for PreK to 12th-grade students. Two initiatives have been designed to provide additional support to students during their one-on-one tutoring sessions. The Native Language Literacy (NLL) Initiative builds students’ literacy skills in their first language, which is an important developmental step to being able to read well in any language. As a part of this initiative, the LSF has a Multicultural Library, with diverse characters and stories as well as more bilingual books. In addition to the NLL, the Early Literacy Initiative (ELI) for PreK to third-grade students uses the Orton-Gillingham approach to teach early reading and phonics skills through a multi-sensory structured and sequential instruction based on the relationship between letters and sounds. 

FALL 2020 DISTANCE LEARNING

The Tutoring Program will take place Tuesday – Thursday from 3 pm – 6 pm and Saturday from 9 am – 12 pm. The one-on-one online tutoring sessions will be personalized to each student’s grade and assessment level. Students will be provided with engaging activities to complete with their tutors in addition to other resources such as Khan Academy. Current families can contact the LSF for additional support for their child’s distance learning plans provided by their school. The LSF will supplement and provide assignments to support students’ curriculum where possible and provide tools to parents to assist them with distance learning for their child. The LSF’s virtual tutoring program has demonstrated success in several areas, including program participation, student academic achievement, and safe and accommodating program space.

For more information about online tutoring, complete a contact form or email Clara Lincoln at [email protected].

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

The Tutoring Program is open to all underprivileged students in grades PreK-12. Students must be from the Washington, DC metropolitan area and be enrolled in a public or private school. PreK students must be 4 years old by the start of the program. Spaces are limited, and the Tutoring Program is currently at capacity for the Fall 2020 semester, but applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis for the waitlist.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES FOR ADULTS

**All classes are open to the community but priority is given to parents and family members of students enrolled in the tutoring program.**

English as a Second Language (ESL) Classes

The LSF offers three levels of ESL classes free of charge. Students work in small groups to improve their language skills with an emphasis on English for work environments. Contact [email protected] to enroll in an online class!

Computer Literacy Classes

The LSF’s Computer Literacy classes teach adult learners basic computer skills, such as creating an email account and navigating the internet. Throughout the year students have the opportunity to study special topics, like completing online job applications and online safety for children.
