English 99 Embedded Tutor Program

Embedded Tutors

 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Grossmont College English 99 Embedded Tutor Program is to engage, retain, and empower developmental writing students to persist in their educational and professional goals. Through an effective collaboration between instructor and tutor, and the utilization of the pedagogy and methodologies of acceleration, we aim to foster a supportive classroom environment that will challenge students to reach new heights in their learning.

 

Program Goals

  • To support developmental reading and writing students in becoming better readers, writers and critical thinkers with the extra support of a trained classroom tutor
  • To inspire students through having a class tutor who also acts as a guide and model academic
  • To create a partnership between instructor and embedded tutor that increases productivity and depth of learning during group work, one-on-one tutoring and other class activities
  • To support the growth of tutors in their educational and professional goals and offer a rewarding experience that will allow them to build their interpersonal and leadership skills, develop their teaching philosophy through mentorship by a seasoned instructor, and expand their resume
