Diagnostic-Prescriptive Academic Tutoring
The proposed program will provide participants with development in literacy-based learning using the Reciprocal Teaching (Reading and Learning Intervention) and the correlate study skills that enhance understanding. This component provides the skill development students need to create a framework for reading informational text and the tutees learn to use self-directed study skills when they engage in learning.

Diagnostic-Prescriptive Learning for the Common Core K-12 English Language Arts

Guided Structured Individualized Learning
Tutors will oversee students’ learning using Guided Pathways approach which rests on 4 foundational pillars ideal for individualizing lessons. These include helping each student to
(1) clarify the path by ensuring clear curricular pathways,
(2) enter the path created by helping students choose their approach,
(3) help students stay on the path consistently, and
(4) ensure learning by ensuring that learning is happening with intentional outcomes.

Also, this approach allows students to document their learning using a Guided Pathway Tutoring Portfolio that includes a ten-step individualization process that can be repeated across the curriculum and that requires students to (1) preview, (2) discover, (3) comprehend, (4) enrich, (5) develop, (6) analyze, (7) synthesize, (8) review, (9) assess, and (10) evaluate.

Option 04 : A Male-Male Mentorship and Tutoring Program

The term, “Big Daddy,” hails from Black Southern culture where grandfathers are called “Big Daddy” to connote a larger perspective than a father. Big Daddies have more resources and are more generous with these than daddies; they have more patience than daddies and more time to talk to boys. They are favorite staples in the Black community in southern states. Our program is based on this cultural tradition. We recruit and screen successful urban men who want to make a difference in the lives of young males. These “Big Daddies” serve as online mentors who engage young males weekly for dialogues reflections, and success planning for the future. “Big Daddies” engage their mentees via email and Zoom for weekly meetings where male discussion and guidance take place. These include personal concerns, career explorations, and academic tutoring.
