WiSHES will soon offer 2.0 hour virtual tutoring sessions. All sessions will take place using meeting platforms with WiSHES tutoring staff. This program is in the pilot stage and will offer assistance in reading, reading comprehension, and mathematics to remote and hybrid learners. This option is ideal for:
- Students who have health challenges preventing them from coming to our facility.
- If a stay at home order is issued due to COVID-19.
The virtual tutoring program is in the pilot stage. At this time we will offer assistance in reading, reading comprehension, and mathematics. More subjects may be added later.
The following basic hardware, school supplies, setting, and skill requirements are needed to participate in this program:
- Laptop or iPad with a working camera
- Working Headphones with a microphone or working microphone in the laptop
- Quiet work area
- All school supplies (i.e. pencil, eraser, and academic books)
- Ability and knowledge of steps required to share their screen with the tutor
Please note, this list is subject to change and may vary based on students academic needs.
Because staff are expected to have scheduled appointments it is imperative that students are logged on 10 minutes before their sessions begin in case there are any unforeseen technical difficulties. All sessions (unless otherwise stated by the virtual tutor) will conclude promptly at the end of the scheduled time.
All fees are due at the end of the session. Fees may be paid in advance, however, no refunds will be given after payment is made. If services are cancelled with more than 24 hours notice credit balances may be redeemed at a later date.
