Center for Urban Education, New York, NY. Program Reference Service.
The Homework Helper Program with 100 centers in New York City, serving 1500 tutors and 4500 tutees, helps both tutors and tutees. Tutors (disadvantaged secondary school students) are paid $1.50-$2.00 an hour which helps them stay in school and gives them experiences of "success." Tutees (fourth, fifth, and sixth grade pupils performing below grade level) benefit by receiving individual help in basic skills and study habits, and by the opportunity to identify with a positive role model offered by the tutor. Tutorial sessions are held under the direction of a master teacher who trains and guides the tutors and acts as a liaison between tutors and classroom teachers. Morning summer programs were held from 1964 through 1969. (KG)
