FEV Math Tutoring

1:1 Math Intensive (Tier 3) Tutoring Online

Connecting Waters (CW) Students

 

We are excited to announce FEV Math Tutoring Online is now available to Tier 2 and Tier 3 students as an approved Tier 3 option and will be subsidized with LCAP as funds allow.  This is for students in grades 3-12 who have not yet passed Algebra 1 and struggle with their math skills.  SPED Students are STRONGLY encouraged to enroll!

We received great feedback from our pilot program last semester. Students who used FEV made great progress in their math skills.  Tutoring takes place online, is 1:1 student / instructor ratio, and students meet 3 times per week for an hour as their schedule allows.  The program is flexible.  We encourage you to sign your struggling math students up for this program, especially if other Tier 3 options have not been successful.  The FEV staff will assist with contacting the family to schedule sessions and re-schedule missed appointments to assist with increased accountability. 

Instructors and students communicate via a chat box and white board, however, Parents/ESs can request text-to-speech options if the student is a struggling reader, and speech-to-text options if the student is not proficient in typing.  

All students have access to FEV Tutor's entire set of Learning Style Options.  They designed their platform in this way to give students the option to gravitate to whatever mode of communication works best for them and to avoid running into the frequent internet bandwidth / tech issues often tied to heavy video and voice applications. 

·  Auditory (Text-to-Speech) - this is on by default and can be deactivated anytime clicking the mute button that looks like a volume symbol.

·  Digital (Chat Box) - primary mode of communication for many students who prefer the anonymous nature of chat and want to work on their digital communication skills.

·  Kinesthetic - (Hands-On Tools) - always available for students to interact on the canvas. 

·  Verbal - (1-Way Student Voice) - students can speak directly back to their tutors. There is no Speech-to-Text. It's a direct line of 1-way student voice communication. To activate this option, students just have to notify their tutors.

In general, if students would like to activate the Verbal Communication 1-way student voice option they just need to notify their tutors.
