This issue is all about Winter and
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Greetings, Tutors!

Happy New Year! As we reflect, refocus and reenergize, we are excited about the new possibilities and opportunities in 2022.  

This newsletter offers curricula and supplemental materials about Winter and Martin Luther King, Jr.  As an organization, we hope our students will be inquisitive about US history, civics, cultural practices, and observations. These profiled topics are touchpoints to encourage learners to increase their knowledge and awareness.  

May 2022 bring you good health and tranquility!

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or need help with tutoring strategies. Be well and take care.

With gratitude and hope,

Your Tutor Support Specialist
Tutor Engagement

  • Tutoring Reminder: As your student attains 30 or more hours of tutoring time one of our assessment specialists – Karin or Karen – will contact you about post-testing your student. Testing is currently conducted both in-person or virtually. Tutors are encouraged to attend the assessment session. Following the test, you will be contacted by Carol to discuss your student’s progress and to discuss methods and materials which will support your tutoring efforts.  
  • Do you have a tip or idea to share with other tutors? We want to hear from YOU! Email Carol, your ideas, questions, or opportunities, and your contribution may be featured in an upcoming issue!
