Our tutoring model
The North Star Tutoring Program is a teacher-supervised cross-age tutoring model.
One elementary grade teacher
recruits and supervises the tutored
children. He/she also directs the
tutors to address the specific
needs of each child as they are
discovered during the daytime
Tutors tutor at anywhere from a one-to-one ratio to a
maximum of one-to-three ratio.
The teachers adjust the tutor-to-student ratios based on
individual student needs and the tutor's skills.
Each tutor also maintains a folder on their students to track
their needs and progress.
An upper grade teacher
recruits, helps train, supervises
and coaches the upper grade
students as tutors.
This after-school tutoring in elementary grade classroom focuses on practicing
after-school those lessons and materials presented earlier in the day or week.
The teachers can get the individualized help to the children that they would not
get otherwise. the focus is on reading, math and homework. We include
homework because that is where reading and math concepts are assigned for
