How To Sign Up For Tutoring

Parents must follow ALL three steps in order to sign up their child for tutoring. Your child cannot participate in tutoring unless ALL these steps are followed.

  1. Parents: Fill out the interest form (if you have already done so, skip this step) :
  2. Parents and children must sign the following
    1. Student-Parent Agreement form
    2. COVID-19 Waiver form
    3. Hold harmless form**

Before Every Tutoring Session

Every Monday, I will send a weekly sign-in link via email for parents to fill out to enroll their child in tutoring for that week. This needs to be done so that the tutor coordinator can dispatch an appropriate number of tutors

Weekly Sign-In Sheet:

Failure to fill the form out will result in your child not being able to participate in tutoring for that week.

After Every Tutoring Session

Parents: Before picking up their children from drop-in tutoring, parents must fill out the weekly tutoring sheet to confirm that your child attended the session. Filling out this form means that the parent agrees to pay for the tutoring services that took place on that day.

Weekly Exit Ticket Sheet:

Tutors: Tutors will fill out a tutoring synopsis sheet that will outline which student was tutored, what topics were discussed, strengths, weaknesses, and homework completed/to be completed.

Here is a sample tutoring synopsis sheet that the tutors will fill out after every session:
