Our Essentials tutoring materials include Student Books (Book A:Grades 1/2, Book B:Grades 3/4, Book C:Grades 5/6, and Book D:Grades7/8) and Tutoring Guides that correspond to each Student Book. In addition to the Student Books and Tutor Guides, organizations that are awarded REACH Community funding will also be offered webinar training for their tutors.
