Our Program

  1. We recruit and background check experienced tutors.
  2. The tutors participate in an onboarding meeting, a “Teaching Metacognition, Executive Functions, and Interpersonal Skills” roundtable, and a “Culturally Responsive and Trauma-Informed Teaching” course.
  3. Low-income students of color in grades 6-12 are nominated by anyone (family member, teacher, coach, neighbor, etc.) – they can even nominate themselves!
  4. Accepted students complete grade-level appropriate tests to asses their levels of mastery in Math and ELAR. They also complete a survey to determine their present capacity for soft skills. Their parents/guardians complete a survey to detail their child’s current levels.
  5. Each accepted student is paired with one tutor for the upcoming term (Fall Term is October – January, Spring Term is February – May, and Summer Term is June – September).
  6. The tutors schedule each student for 18 hours of online tutoring over the 4-month term. Educate. Radiate. Elevate. is using specific proven-effective methodologies developed by the Founder of WorldWise Tutoring.
  7. Throughout the course of the program, the tutors will regularly provide feedback to the parents/guardians regarding the students’ progress.
  8. Upon completion of the program, the students and their parents/guardians complete exit assessments and surveys. Students with good attendance are invited to continue tutoring for subsequent terms until they graduate high school.
