“When I was doing the Study Skills course, when I finished, I felt amazing. I was able to know everything about the three barriers. Now, studying will be easier than ever and my teacher (CLC tutor) is the best! I would know that I don’t know sometimes but now, I do and I know how to fix it.” – O. (7th grade)
“I learned the three barriers to study, and I also learned how to look up a word. This helps me learn and focus better. This can help me become a smart pilot and fly over the world. This all came from my tutor.” – Z. (5th grade student)

Multiplication War: Shuffle a deck of cards and deal out the cards between two people. Both people flip over the top card of their pile at the same time and say the answer of the number on each of the two cards when multiplied together. Whoever says the correct answer first gets both cards and the person with the most cards at the end wins the game.
Math Games With Dice: Roll two dice, multiply the two numbers, and then add that number to their total to create a running score.
Bingo Math: Create bingo sheets with random numbers on them. Call out multiplication equations and have them figure out the answers. Once a number is revealed, they can mark it off their sheet depending on if they have it or not. Whoever gets five numbers in a row on their sheet will have a bingo.
Multiplication Math Trails: Draw an irregular route on a piece of paper, covering it with different multiplication equations to solve in order to figure out the way.
Multiplication Race: Time how long it takes to solve multiple problems with the goal of beating their own record as they get faster.
“Oh my goodness, I’ve learned so much in such a little time. But I am so grateful for my tutor. I’ve missed so much of this schooling (teaching) when I was younger. But I am so determined to go all the way.” -L.B. (adult GED math student) *L.B. pictured on right with her CLC Tutor, Sioux
Tutoring can have a direct effect on a student’s academic performance. Through one-on-one instruction, tutors can help students understand the material more fully and identify areas of weakness. Tutors can help students develop better study habits, such as taking notes, outlining material, and using study guides.
Tutors can provide support and motivation to help students stay on track with their studies while also building a student’s self-confidence.
Tutors can provide a positive environment for learning, which can help students feel more comfortable asking questions and trying new things. Tutors can help students build strong critical thinking skills and feel more confident in their ability to tackle challenging material.
Finally, tutoring can help students develop better time management skills and help them learn how to prioritize tasks. Tutors can help students plan out their studies more efficiently and identify areas where they can improve their study habits.

“I’ve been speeding ahead on my phonics, and I want to be going fast on my math. I’ve passed three phonics books now and one math book. I’ve been writing and reading with Ms. Stephanie (CLC Tutor).
