How was my child selected for Reading Corps, Math Corps, Early Learning Corps?
We work closely with your school staff to measure grade level reading and math skills against benchmark assessments. Any child who scores below the grade level target is eligible to receive Reading Corps or Math Corps services.
What do tutoring sessions look like? What happens?
Trained tutors practice foundational literacy and math skill building with students in small groups or one-on-one. This could be extra practice reading passages or extra practice understanding math concepts using hands-on tools.
What skills are important for my child’s age?
While skills can vary based on age, most schools use the Common Core standards as a measure of a child’s academic progress.
Who will be tutoring my child?
Reading Corps, Math Corps, and Early Learning Corps work with members of your community to train them in an evidence-based approach to tutoring. Tutors have a team of people to support them and your student(s) — including an internal coach, coaching specialist and teachers. Our tutors are committed to helping your student(s) get to grade-level and beyond!
How will I know how my child is doing?
Tutors work closely with Internal Coaches and teachers to make sure that your child is working on skills that transfer into the classroom. Your child’s Internal Coach is the best point of contact for status updates.
What does it mean that my child is reading below grade level? (Math below grade level?)
If your child is scoring below target on grade-level assessments, they may benefit from additional practice to build the skills they are learning with their classroom teacher. Some kids just need a little bit of extra practice with a skilled adult to make significant gains!
How long will my child receive tutoring?
Students will receive support from a tutor until they are consistently meeting grade level targets and parents can choose to opt out of services at any time.
Will my family be charged a fee for tutoring?
No. There is never a fee for families receiving tutoring through Reading Corps, Math Corps, and Early Learning Corps.
