Scheduling information could be found on our schedules page.
First and foremost, thank you for signing up! We really appreciate it! Before you begin your first session, here’s some more information about how this program will run:
Sidharth and I (Emily) are here to help you with anything. You can ask us for help with sessions, to cover for you if you can’t make it to a session, service hours, to help you contact the parent or student, technical difficulties, etc.
You can contact us at:
Emily | (916) 524-9260
Sidharth | (916) 407-9922
We will have content lined up for you for K-8 (linked above). This will be a resource for you guys to help plan tutoring sessions and know what to teach. Some children need you to help them with their homework or schoolwork, well others need some extra practice. If you find yourself with nothing to do for the hour or rest of the hour, you will find some great activities in our resource doc as well.
All sessions will take place over Zoom. You will either create your own meeting or send your meeting ID and PW to join the sessions. You should be able to get in without anyone letting you in, but you must claim host once you joined the zoom. Instructions on how to do that are on the right. If you create your own meeting, make sure to send it to me. You can email me at email@example.com or text me at (916)524-9260.
If your student does not show up or does not contact you by the first 10 min of the session, text, email, or call the parent to remind them. If they do not respond to you or do not show up another 10 min later (so 20 min into the session), end the call and consider it a canceled session. If your student does not show up to three sessions in a row without letting me or you know, we will have to discontinue their tutoring sessions for the time being. Just let me know, and I will take care of telling them. We want to give more children this opportunity and pair you up with another student to tutor.
Lastly, hour logs. We ask that every tutor logs their hour weekly. The hour log is attached to this page. Just check the box next to your name and the session that you've completed. You can check your box all at the end of the week or after each session. You can also check out your cumulative hours in the second tab at the bottom. I clear the form Sunday night so, please log your hours by then.
That is all! Thank you all again, and I hope you enjoy your sessions! Contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Here are some resources to use during sessions. Books for the Reading workshop are also here. These are good to use when you have some extra time during sessions and don't know what to do!
If you feel as if your student is making great progress with their sessions, send them a golden star! Just fill our the form below.
