Remind Tutoring is a platform for parents, students, organizations, and school districts to connect with qualified tutors for individualized assistance with achieving academic success. Sessions are personalized and focus on adding value as a component of a complete educational experience with students, teachers, and parents all actively involved.
Before Your Sessions
- Review previously submitted session summaries, onboarding information, or session-specific information provided in the Remind Tutoring application
- If you don’t receive any of the onboarding information prior to the first session, the best practice is to go through goal-setting and assessment exercises with the student and parent during the first session.
- Students are unable to join a session until you have already done so. In order to ensure your students are able to join their sessions, you should have already joined in a quiet, professional, and comfortable location that is free from distractions.
During Your Sessions
- Communicate with your students, and their parents if appropriate, in a respectful and friendly manner
- If a student does not show for their session:
- Please remain on the session with your video on for at least 15 minutes after the scheduled start time for the session.
- If the student does not show after 15 minutes, you are welcome to disconnect; you will be paid for the full session
- If the student does show up late, you do not need to continue the session after the scheduled end time
- Reach out to Remind Support by clicking on the “Get Help Live” button for immediate assistance
- If this is a student’s first session, their parent or guardian may be present. Try to get a sense from the student or parent where they’re currently struggling.
After Your Sessions
- Complete the session summary while the session is still fresh in your mind. Download the generated pdf, attach and send this to the student and parent through the Remind Thread. A video outlining this process can be seen here.
- Specifically call out any additional concepts the student can work on between sessions to improve their mastery of the subject.
