What do Student Tutors Do?
Student-to-student tutoring generally occurs in a one-on-one or small group model. Depending on specific grade levels, students have differing amounts of homework. Tutors often provide homework support, may read to the students, listen to them read, provide guidance about organizational skills or play games when the work is complete.
Are the Student Tutors Supervised?
The director of the after-school programs will supervise the tutoring; together with the MCSV Program Coordinator, they will provide initial placements and guidance. Student tutors are encouraged to ask questions and ask for help as needed. Tutors are expected to act as responsible role models at all times. Student tutors are excepted to be mature enough to work with a fair amount of independence after initial placement.
Are Student Tutors Expected to Handle Discipline Issues?
No. Any discipline issues with younger students should be directed to the director of the after school program.
How Often Do Student Volunteers Tutor?
We ask that tutors commit to once a week for at least six weeks or more. The program benefits from the consistent presence of volunteers. Students are expected to be punctual and responsible for reporting any potential absences.
