SMALL GROUP TUTORING
Our Small Group Tutoring Program meets twice a week for 9 weeks. These classes are held at a neutral, public location such as a library or the community room of an apartment complex. The classes are led by two co-tutors. This setup allows tutors to have a wider impact - there are typically 4 learners to 1 tutor.
One-to-one tutoring is held in a neutral place. Recommended sites are public libraries, church or a fast food restaurant with WiFi. The tutor/new reader should work together to find an appropriate location or meeting place. Pairs are not allowed to meet in private locations or homes due to safety and insurance concerns.
REACH is expanding its Small Group Tutoring into the work place. This program focuses on literacy and basic skill training that workers need to gain new employment, retain present jobs, advance in their careers, or increase productivity. Curriculum is developed by educators/tutors working with the employer. Tutoring in the workplace is more convenient for employees, it allows involvement of supervisors and it provides a clear message to employees that their employer is a partner in their success. Tutoring at the workplace allows for ease for the employee and creates an environment of support for adults who struggle with reading, writing and life skills.
