(Remote) Mini-Mathematicians (The M&M’s)

This distance math tutoring program aims at filling in the gaps in 2nd graders understanding of math concepts. Math builds like blocks and if one is missing it can negatively affects a scholar’s understanding. Through the use of online Zoom meetings, Khan Academy lessons, Kahoot! & more, this program seeks to strengthen the students conceptual understanding so that as they grow in their education, they have a strong mathematical foundation. This program is strongly recommended for young scholars that need a comprehensive review of math fundamentals.

(Remote) Readers R Leaders

If a student reads 20 minutes a day at home, they will hear 1.8 million words per year. They will have read for over 600 hours by 6th grade and on standardized tests, they will likely score better than 90% of their peers. This compelling data on the benefits of encouraging your child to read is the motivation behind our “Readers R Leaders” distance tutoring club. Scholars will learn to use phonics and phonemic awareness to build/strengthen their reading fluency. They will learn to use text clues, pictures, and critical thinking to increase comprehension skills. This program will also help to foster a love of reading through engaging read-alouds, group reading, literacy games and activities. This program is strongly recommended for young scholars that are beginning and developing readers.
