TUTORING and LIAISON WORK
A thorough understanding of academic material and success in school are the main goals of the Lone Pine Tribal Youth Education Program. Tutoring is offered to elementary and middle school students Monday through Thursday from 3:00PM to 4:00PM, and to high school students from 3:00PM to 5:00PM. Our team of enthusiastic and competent tutors are available to assist students in their homework completion, and are able to reinforce concepts currently being covered through additional work and educational activities. Through a combination of observation, assessments, and liaison work with school teachers, our tutors are able to develop learning plans individually fitted to student needs:
- All tutors report to the LPTYEP lead tutor/school liaison at the end of the day and provide a summary of what students worked on during the tutoring hour, what the students struggled with, and what the students excelled at.
- Common Core State Standard assessments are given to students at the beginning of the school year in order to evaluate their existing knowledge of mathematics, phonics, and reading. A similar assessment is given at the end of the school year to evaluate academic progress.
- The lead tutor/school liaison meets with the students’ teachers regularly in order to discuss how students are performing in the classroom. Teachers are able to communicate any concerns they may be having about a particular student, whether it be an academic or behavioral issue, and collaborate on how to overcome problems. Additionally, teachers provide regularly updated information on concepts currently being covered in their classroom, so the LPTYEP and the schools are always in sync on academic material.
