The After School-Tutoring program is conducted on the UT Arlington Campus. The weekly tutoring sessions will operate in accordance with the
Upward Bound objectives to develop the participant's academic and professional skills, prepare them for college entrance exams,
and aid them in general academic readiness for college.
Students will be divided by academic need (math, science, English and social science) and will remain in their assigned classroom with the
tutors. Tutors will move from room to room to assist students who are having difficulty in more than one subject area.
In order to aid the students in their academic progress, participants will be offered instruction in all subjects during skill development
and provided tutoring according to the following schedule:
