JUST A SUGGESTION ON WHERE TO START…
PROGRAM CAN BE SCALABLE
  • We can first start in one school within the district and/or with a group of students
  • Starting in areas with more need for tutoring services
  • This also allows parties to gage effectiveness and need to further extend the program to a broader student body in the district

TUTORING CURRICULUM AND CONTENTS

WHAT CONTENTS WILL BE COVERED?
  • Primarily Math, English and Language Arts
  • Science and foreign languages are also available, if needed
