Twice a week, AVID students practice problem-solving and collaborating in college-style study sessions called tutorials.
Students work with each other to build confidence in questioning techniques, voicing "what I already know," leading others to answers, critical thinking, and the collaborative process. The goal of tutorial sessions is to assist students to discover the power of their own thinking, along with helping others in that process. Sometimes students gain more during a tutorial session by helping another student unravel their "points of confusion" than by working through their own personal questions.
Tutorial sessions are small groups of students (typically 5-7 students) facilitated by a high school, college-age, or adult tutor. Tutors must be willing to guide the sometimes "messy" group process in patient and focused ways. We are always seeking qualified volunteers who can commit to this process.
