Dear School Name Tutors,

Winter Break is quickly approaching! We appreciate your dedication to your students as we enter the holiday season. Read below for tutor resources and other fun announcements, including details on Heart's Holiday Family Event!
Important Logistics
 

Upcoming School Holidays & Teacher Work Days
  • Tuesday, November 5th - Teacher Work Day- NO TUTORING
  • Monday, November 11th - Veteran’s Day Holiday – NO TUTORING
  • Wednesday, November 27th-Friday November 29th - Thanksgiving Break – NO TUTORING

Please make note of all CMS holidays and teacher workdays using the calendar here. If your tutoring time falls on a holiday, I can help you reschedule for a different day that week, if your schedule permits. Thank you for your flexibility during these busy seasons!

 
Safety First!

Please remember to sign in at the office computer as a CMS Registered Volunteer.  If you are not able to do so, please let me know right away.  Also, make sure that your Heart nametag is on and visible when you are in the school hallways and retrieving students from class. These are very important for school safety.  Thank you!
Tutor Tip: Welcome the Word Problems!
 
Let your students read the word problems aloud and think about how they want to approach them before you jump in with tips! They have to persist even when it is challenging in order to grow. Ask open-ended questions like, “What is happening in this problem?” and “Does your answer make sense? Why?” if your student seems stuck.
 
Tutor/Student Spotlight
Reunited and it Feels So Good!

Sara Fedyna and Andrew Yavorski of the Leon Levine Foundation are excited that they get to work with their student for the third year in a row! When Sara was working on the “Getting to Know You Activity" the first week of tutoring, their student patted her on the back and said, “I am SO glad you’re back.”
