|Super Tutor with my partner in crime, Ms. Dana.|
I was unexpectedly yet, gratefully, hired on for the summer to work the tutoring centers summer boot camp program. The hours are 9am-12noon Monday through Thursday.
I am assisting another tutor for the 3rd-5th grade class. It's too big to handle alone (15-18 students) combined with such a variation in grade and ability levels.
I decided I was going to wear my red cape, platinum wig and fake glasses and call myself Super Tutor on our final day of the week, Thursday.
The students got a big kick out of it. It wasn't any big deal but it was something different and special to add some fun into our learning environment. I think it also gives the students something to look forward to, maybe? Maybe they might htink I'm the crazy tutor, at their age. That's ok by me!
I want them to enjoy themselves along with their learning. For many of them, it is a challenge and they struggle in certain areas. It's nice to relax a little at the end of a week and be silly.
I spoke with our costume designer from our community theater and she agreed to help me with costume pieces each week. We will see what we can come up with. Stay tuned.
