Nearly 75% of DC students perform at or below basic levels in reading and math. At Malcolm X Elementary in Congress Heights, the numbers are even more staggering,over 90% are below basic levels in math. YOU can help change that! For Love of Children's one-on-one tutoring program helps students achieve grade-level competency in reading and math. In just 22 hours of tutoring, students improve an average of 1 year in reading and math skills while gaining confidence in their abilities.
