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 Zoom, Google Meet* or Bramble**, an online platform designed for tutoring. In some cases, tutoring will occur over the phone. You will work with your tutor to identify the best platform for your child’s tutoring sessions.
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 attend a tutoring session.
Please have your child familiarize themselves with the platform selected for tutoring. Here are some links to help guide your student.
*Students enrolled in LASD’s Reading Fellows program will be meeting with their tutors via Google Meet.
**Please note, Bramble functions best using Chrome on a chromebook, laptop or desktop computer.
When using Bramble, the link sent by the tutor will ask you to enter an email address. You are not required to provide your email address to Bramble, however this will allow you to access 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.
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:
