SCEEP Tutors Receive Training
9/12/2012In September, 12 NA students traveled to the Chatham Presbyterian Church for the first in a series of tutor trainings. The Suburban Cultural Education Enrichment Program (SCEEP) seeks to provide high quality educational, artistic, and cultural programs for all children within the borders of the city of Newark by matching students with volunteer tutors.
NA students learned foundational skills to better address the needs of the third and fourth grade students from Chancellor Academy who travel to NA for tutoring and mentoring. Future training sessions will include cultural sensitivity, literacy and reading foundations, and child development.
The training focused on math literacy and classroom management and discipline. Tutors provide a wide variety of educational enrichment experiences and assist students with homework. This year, however, SCEEP tutors will not only help students with homework and classroom assignments, but also create and implement lesson plans inline with the Core Curriculum Standards for the entire group. In addition, the SCEEP tutoring program will benefit from the hard work and experience of student coordinator Natalie Swanson ’13.
