Project Description

Our Academic Support Program

Many students need more support and direct instruction than they receive in school. At Commonwealth Learning Center, tutors work one-to-one with students on homework assignments, preparing for tests and on other academic work with which they need assistance. Within the context of their academics, students work on skills such as following directions, effective reading of a textbook, and strategies for organizing their time and materials. This extra support has helped many students who have problems with organizing, paying attention or completing assignments independently. Our goal is threefold:

  • to develop students’ independence and self-esteem by directly teaching appropriate learning strategies
  • to help students transfer and apply these skills to their everyday school situations
  • to teach students to effectively monitor their own learning
