Because teachers don’t always have the time to do one-on-one guided reading sessions, students are now able to get connected to tutors, thanks to Vello Online Tutoring.
Children who are not reading at grade level by 4th grade are held back. Teachers don’t always have the time to do one on one guided reading sessions with struggling students. Nearly 30% of millennial volunteers say they would participate more often if there were easier ways to find opportunities and more flexibility.
Vello, our online tutoring program, pairs teams of passionate professionals with classrooms to provide guided reading support through a safe and secure digital setting. Together, students and volunteer tutors read e-books using super simple screen sharing and audio. Volunteers are able to do their weekly 30-minute tutor sessions from anywhere with a computer and internet access, making it easy to do without leaving their workspace. Students have 24/7 access to an extensive e-library for themselves and their family members.
Vello virtual tutoring is reaching students in more classrooms and connecting even more volunteers to become part of the program.
