I spent yesterday teaching a training session to our district wide AVID tutors. It was a great day. We had a chance to really delve deeper into what makes a great tutorial session. Our tutors are students in college (or in dual credit classes) who come in during the school week to work with our AVID students. The process they use is the Socratic method of tutoring.
It is a very inspiring day to spend the time with these young people. They are the best of the best. And their hard work with our AVID students is making a huge difference in their lives and in the lives of so many members of our community.
