The Watertown Daily Times wrote a story about St. Lawrence and SUNY Potsdam students staffing a homework hotline for Massena Central School students. Esther Oey, assistant professor of education & coordinator of the Teacher Education Program, worked with Massena's curriculum director to learn more about how St. Lawrence's Reading and Math Tutor Program could support their students during the unusual school year while ensuring our students had their education field experience and were able to participate/work in schools this fall.
This arrangement not only provided homework support for students after school hours, but it also reduced pressure for teachers to stay connected during those hours as well.
St. Lawrence's The Reading & Math Tutor Program is designed to support local schools in raising the level of reading and math proficiency in students during a critical period of foundational knowledge building. St. Lawrence students spend 8 -12 hours per week working with K-6 students to help them develop fundamental math and reading skills. Tutors may also work with middle and high school students in reading, math, or another content area, as opportunities become available.
