Description

Tapping into the existing resources and staff available within your school, The Revitalized Tutoring Center provides an effective strategy to improve instruction and student performance. This practical guide shares the blueprint, best practices, and resources necessary to create and implement a robust, embedded tutoring center. This dynamic peer tutoring model brings together teachers, peers, and community members in a support network that identifies students in need and facilitates individualized instruction. With a peer tutoring model in place, schools are better positioned to initiate and sustain a variety of initiatives such as PLCs, RTI, formative assessment, community partnerships, and service learning, while creating equitable access and opportunity for all. This book illustrates how instructional leaders can leverage existing resources in a sustainable and cost-effective way to implement a model that ultimately leads to cultural changes, innovation, and significant academic improvement.
