Many of the students in the South Dallas community lack good study skills, access to computers, and the availability of help with their homework and test taking skills. The South Dallas Education Center opened in 2005 the center provides free, one-on-one tutoring services to students in grades 2nd through 12th
in math, language arts, reading, writing, science, and social studies. Students are accepted from all of the neighborhood schools in the community.

The goal of the program is to raise both academic expectations and achievements. Students are tutored in the various subject areas as well as in computer skills and test-taking skills. All students have access to our computers and the internet to complete their weekly assignments.  They also have access to our sizeable lending library. The teachers working with the students are all certified.

During the 2016 school year, the tutoring center provided practice in test-taking skills for TAKS (the Texas Assessment of Knowledge Skills) and various other tests. All students who took the Reading and Math TAKS passed at a rate of 97 percent in reading and math. All students who took the Writing TAKS passed at a rate of 100 percent. In addition, the tutoring center maintained a promotion rate of 100 percent. In addition to Education this center will also assistance students in the fundamentals of financial literacy and free enterprise system.
