GEAR UP College Preparation Assistant Program

College Preparation Assistant Program

The College Preparation Assistant (CPA) Program provides tutors hired and trained by GEAR UP to work with students individually and in small groups. CPAs offer academic assistance to students primarily in mathematics, science, reading and writing. CPAs are college students who may or may not be studying to be teachers. GEAR UP recruits CPAs from The Evergreen State College as well as other colleges and universities.

"As a CPA I provide an example of a college student to many children who don't know anyone in college. I love when the students ask me questions about college life, classes, organizations, and even parties. It is so wonderful to see their interest and have them realize that with the proper preparation and planning, they too can go on to complete higher education." (2004-05 CPA)
