Summer Tutorial Program Prepares Students for September

August 02, 2018

Summer Tutorial Program Prepares Students for September - image001A number of elementary and middle school students in the Levittown Public Schools received a head start on the 2018-19 school year with the district's four-week Summer Tutorial Program held at Levittown Memorial Education Center. The program, now in its 19th year, supports students entering grades 2-6 with math and reading review/remediation.

Students attended one of two morning sessions, while supervisors and teachers Kristy Quinlan and Janet Jakubowski were instrumental in implementing and overseeing the program this summer. The students received instruction in a small group setting from highly qualified tutors while engaging in a curriculum that included reading, writing and math activities. For the first time this year, students also utilized the computer based iReady Program for additional practice and assessments in both reading and math.

Throughout the program, students were encouraged to independently read books and select from a variety of writing activities to culminate their reading. An incentive program was established to help motivate students to read as many books as possible throughout the program. The student who read the most books at the end of the program was awarded a gift card.

Each student's progress was monitored by their tutors and supervisors throughout the program using the iReady program.

"Students showed great strides in developing their academic abilities and confidence," said Quinlan. "Overall, the students in the Summer Tutorial Program enjoyed interacting with their peers and tutor."
