Lite House “Tutoring Program”
What makes our program so special? We ask the students what concerns they have. Then we find out where the disconnect occurred. Once we identify the disconnect academically, and relate it to the student, they feel confident and can learn anything. For example:
- We taught 1st and 2nd graders how to play “blackjack – 21”. They did not realize they were learning addition and subtraction.
- We ask them to write down the lyrics to their favorite song or poem. They did not realize we were teaching them writing skills.
- We relate every subject to something personal in their lives. When the students find a connection to learning; the biggest smile comes across their face.
