For the past three semesters, we have managed to have successful pairings between tutors and students. At the end of this semester, we have managed to reach over 60 tutors with a variety of language abilities that serve over 200 immigrants and refugees within the greater New Haven area. Weekly sessions have resulted in improvement of English ability and eased transitions. The students, teachers, and families have enjoyed the project thus far. We create community events to bring together these different groups and foster inclusivity. Our last event was a community picnic, and there was a successful turnout of families and tutors.
How do you measure student progress? Perhaps surveying their teachers -- or tracking the progress on their school reports?
Let us know how we can be helpful.
Thanks! We would love to have you get further involved if possible! My email is [REDACTED]. Feel free to reach out to me personally to see if there are any opportunities that would work for you!
