As we continue to deal with learning disruptions due to COVID, it’s clear that tutoring and remediation will become an even larger priority for schools. High-dosage tutoring has been shown to be one of the most effective education interventions, and it will be a critical tool in catching up new learning gaps. Effective tutoring builds trust with students and shows that we value their learning, resulting in both higher engagement and increased learning.
At EdLight, we’ve found a method of remote tutoring that puts student thinking first. We are sharing an example of this approach used by EdLight’s Master Educator, Lis Bluford. Lis’s remote tutoring framework that is centered on independent work with several rounds of feedback. Lis treats the tutoring as an extension of class, using the same text as class to keep the rigor high, while offering the individual supports that can be hard to provide during remote / hybrid learning.
