The GEAR UP partnership between San Diego State University and the City Heights Educational Collaborative presents a tutoring model that integrates resources and personnel through in-classroom and after-school tutoring at target schools utilizing an intensive college preparation tutoring strategy. Major features of the program include pre-professional training of undergraduates through university-sponsored service-learning course work, the inclusion of university faculty as teacher/ trainers, a recruitment and selection process that garners a large number of undergraduates from underrepresented low-income backgrounds, and collaboration with the university’s financial aid office through America Counts. We offer a tool kit of ideas and strategies for implementation.
