Genola Utah Community Tutoring Plan

Our community based organization will provide free tutoring for the students of Genola for the current school year.  Our mission is to help students love learning by making it easier for them to understand their homework  and encouraging them to face their challenges and learn in the process.

We have a wonderful group of retired educators in all fields, that have volunteered to help.  Linda Christensen has been previously certified in all sciences and Elsie Mosher is certified in Math.  They are the first 2 volunteers and have many years of experience and will be overseeing the program.

We hope to be meeting every Tuesday and Thursday evening from
6-7:30 p.m. Starting September 30th.  This will follow the school year, except for any conflicting holidays.
**We will meet in the Old Town Hall building, (soon to be New Library).

Parents can bring their students from first through twelfth grade for help. (Just be sure and bring the assignments and books.)
We have a blackboard and tables and chairs in place.  Depending on demand, we might have to borrow more chairs etc.
*We have some textbooks, but are trying to get more donated.

During the tutoring sessions, we will help with homework assignments, but we also hope to help the younger students learn to ask, explore, and answer questions about their assignments, helping them become better listeners, thinkers, speakers, and writers so they will have academic success.  The older students sometimes fall behind with increased workload, many classes and social life issues that result in problems.  The students will also receive help and support with these issues in addition to academic support.
WE(senior  citizens) are looking forward to this opportunity to help the students in Genola "LOVE TO LEARN'.
