People from all over the Mid-South region have attended United Way’s Advanced Tutoring Brown Bag luncheons. The next tutoring will be Nov. 1.

United Way, along with Literacy Mid-South, Shelby County Schools and Urban Youth Initiative is sponsoring an Advanced Tutor Training  session on Friday, November 1.

The training session is focused on “Common Core Standards for Math” and begins at 11:30 a.m. It will be held at the Teaching and Learning Academy, 2485 Union. The session is free and open to the public.

For the past several years, United Way of the Mid-South, Shelby County Schools, Literacy Mid-South, and Urban Youth Initiative have partnered and offered additional training opportunities for Mid-South tutors and mentors.

The training series kicked off with a great start October 4th with a session on “Accommodating Learning Differences: An Intro to Multi-Sensory Learning” with facilitator Astrid French, curriculum coordinator for SRVS.

People serving as tutors for children and adults are invited to participate in the free monthly series.

Human beings learn through different modalities and learning styles. Each person uses multiple “learning channels,” and each person has strengths in terms of which learning style works best. It is essential that the individual primarily uses his or her learning style strengths and talents to improve acquisition of information. Moreover, it is important for each student to use as many channels as possible to best learn, understand, and retain new information.

Join us at this presentation that will help you incorporate these new techniques into your tutoring!  Bring a brown bag lunch and eat with your fellow tutors.
