V.O.I.C.E (Volunteers of Issaquah Changing Education) Mentoring/Tutoring:
V.O.I.C.E. is comprised of community members who volunteer their time during the school day or after school to help mentor/tutor students in need. The need may be scholastically based, social emotional, or both. Students interested in this can pick up an application in the counseling office, or from Mr. Myers (V.O.I.C.E site coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org) in the main office. Once parents have completed the application please return it to Mr. Myers in the main office. Students are matched based upon mentor availability and area of need.
Parent Note: Tutors should provide academic support by helping a student practice the process required to independently reach answers, to understand class concepts and/or to improve study habits, not to just provide the answers for the student. A student in tutoring is there to learn how to get their own answers while applying class concepts, so they will be able to demonstrate independent mastery on tests as a result. By creating a test-like environment when working with a tutor, rather than a homework session, students and tutors are better able to focus on strengthening the independent demonstration of skills most important for student success. If a student's performance on tests is far different than performance on homework done with a tutor, you may want to discuss the goals of the tutoring sessions & how to best utilize tutoring time with that tutor.
