Celebrate C.L.A.S.S. Success
The Center for Learning and Academic Support Services is marking its third year anniversary and celebrating the students who have benefited from their tutoring and mentoring support. Happy anniversary!
Extensive research has been done by the U.S. Department of Education to identify the qualities of successful tutorial programs that serve students who are bridging gaps or preparing for college entrance exams. The conclusions they reached with their research actually define how C.L.A.S.S. delivers effective programs to address the academic concerns for students.
“Among the features of tutoring programs associated with the most positive gains are extensive training for tutors, formal time commitments by tutors, and close relationships between classroom instruction and curriculum and the tutoring services provided.” (U.S. Dept. of Education)
The mission of C.L.A.S.S. is to provide individually-focused student instruction. By providing quality staff and one-on-one academic support, students gain the necessary skills to become self-confident learners and contributing members of the community.
If you are a student who has gained new confidence in school because of the C.L.A.S.S. program, let your tutors know how well you are doing. They will be rewarded knowing they have made a difference in your life.
The Center for Learning and Academic Support Services is a non-profit organization. They are able to deliver these important services because donors have made financial gifts knowing what a positive impact they can make with their support. Consider joining others in supporting the work of C.L.A.S.S.
