Welcome to MTC! Your child has been selected by his or her teacher or school administrator to receive additional support from one of our volunteer tutors. We are excited to partner with you!
In order for your student to be matched with a tutor, please review and complete the following:
One-on-One Tutoring will be provided via Bramble, an online platform designed for tutoring. Before your first tutoring session, please have your child watch the following brief videos so that they are familiar with the platform. *Please note, Bramble functions best using Chrome on a chromebook, laptop or desktop computer.
Once your child is matched with a tutor, the tutor will contact you to schedule tutoring sessions. The tutor will then send you a link where your child can connect to an online tutoring room. The link will ask you to enter an email address. You are not required to provide your email address to Bramble, however this will enable the tutor to send a recording at the end of each tutoring session so that your child can replay the session if needed. Please note, email addresses ending in @lasdk8.org or @mvwsdk8.net are unable to receive email from any platform outside of the district, therefore you will want to provide an alternate email address. The email provided may be the student’s email address or the parent’s email address.
Book Buddies – Some students will be participating in our “Book Buddies” program which does not require a student and tutor to communicate online. Book Buddies partners have the option to read and discuss books over the phone, at a set time every week.
Your Tutor Program Manager will work with your student’s teacher to identify the best program for your child.
Student/Family Commitment to Remote Tutoring
- Students attend scheduled sessions on time and prepared with necessary materials and limited distractions
- When needed, students cancel sessions in advance by contacting their tutor via email
- Tutors may be reassigned if multiple remote sessions are missed
We are honored to partner with you to support your child. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our tutoring program, please contact your Tutor Program Manager via email:
