"Before joining AVID, our students had average academic records and above average potential," said Valeri Angus, coordinator. "As AVID students, they've chosen a more rigorous academic track to prepare for college, and they're determined to succeed."
Tutors will lead structured sessions for five to seven AVID students, twice a week, under the supervision of a certified teacher. Training will be provided.
"This is a great opportunity for college students to see the world of education through a hands-on approach," Angus said. "It's not a typical tutoring situation. It's not just helping younger students with homework. Tutoring groups work through a high-level questioning format to help the junior high and high school students arrive at the answers and train their brains to think like college students. Tutors also learn a lot in the process."
