The Tutorial Center. One of a kind.

“There is nothing like The Tutorial Center in Arizona, will you please come open one!”

That was the reaction of an Arizona Dept. of Education manager after attending TTC Executive Director Jack Glade’s workshop describing The Tutorial Center and its successful Youth Agriculture Project, given at the recent National Dropout Prevention Forum for Native and Tribal Communities. The attendees were educators from Native American communities across America — think Hawaii, Iowa, Alaska, Montana, the Dakotas, Florida as well as Arizona, New Mexico and Utah — looking to learn about educational programs that have proven results in helping high school dropouts reconnect to education and become high school graduates. Nationally, Native American communities experience very high dropout rates. Jack shared the successes of the Youth Agriculture Project and presented a model for replicating the Project in other communities.

What we hear...


“[The student] has made significant gains in reading. Her MAP reading score in September was 156 and on the first percentile. We have just finished our spring testing and she is now on the 45th percentile with a score of 188. She is now performing at grade level. All around, she is much happier and confident. Her parents and I can see a big difference in attitude.”
