What are tutorials?
One of the pillars of the AVID program is the tutorial groups where students are supported in their Pre-AP classes through the help of college tutors. It is not a place where students do homework or have others review class content if they were absent or not paying attention. Students should be prepared with their notes, completed or partially-completed homework, and Tutorial Request Form.
The goals of a tutorial are:
- To teach students the skills needed to work collaboratively to solve problems.
- Empowering students to answer their own questions by posing questions helps students to think more deeply about what they are learning.
- To guide students in high-level discussions as a means of developing vocabulary, enhancing discussion skills, and fostering thought processes that enable students to succeed in their classes.
- To reinforce writing skills through a review of notes, learning logs, essays, etc.
Students must have their Tutorial Request Form completed before a tutoring session.
