Main Components of the Tutoring Hour:
One or more of the following activities may be used to substitute an element of the tutoring hour depending on your student’s needs:
Notes should be made on each activity and your student’s level of understanding. Any lesson that yields a high number of incorrect responses should be noted so that we can provide you with extra help for your student in that particular area.
If a student is consistently struggling on Lexia or in their workbooks or if the levels do not seem appropriate for your student, please let the Program Manager know so that the student’s levels can be reviewed further.
Encourage your student to take home a free book every time he/she comes to Gainesville Reads! Studies have shown that being read to as a child and having books in the home are the two most important indicators of future academic success.
Gainesville Reads is not as concerned about speed during Lexia exercises, as our students are still developing skills. Let your students know that we are not worried about speed, but want to ensure they understand the concepts being presented.
Know that the time you give to your student is appreciated by their families and the Gainesville Reads staff.
