Teachers are the superstars who are leading K-12 educational development in the classroom. As we know, students learn best in a caring environment fostered by experienced educators. We also know that tutoring is able to play a monumental role in aiding students’ education.
Tutors can provide supplemental support through creating personalized lesson plans to supplement work in the classroom to help students where they struggle most. With the emergence of data tracking in K-12 performance, tutors are able to suggest better ways to strategically reach each student.
Check out these ways teachers benefit from data-driven tutoring for their classroom needs.
Students Form Better Studying Habits
Traditional educators are usually faced with the challenge of providing instruction while also being in charge of a class of at least 12 to 24 students. Expecting every student to learn at the same pace and not get distracted in large group settings isn’t always practical.
Tutors focus on 3-5 person small groups, drastically reducing common distractions that come with the typical classroom. Distraction-free environments help build better studying habits in students that are translated into the classroom. Especially with online tutoring, students are able to focus on the course material in tutoring sessions.
Higher Student Academic Confidence
In a classroom, K-12 educators generalize their lesson plans to the average student. This means that they can’t accelerate too far ahead or go too slow to provide the best possible experience for the most number of students.
The overarching problem with this is fast learners aren’t being challenged and slow learners aren’t given enough time to understand course material. Data-driven tutoring, however, is able to find patterns in instruction methods that work best for each student and thus customize how they’ll be presented information in the future. This boosts student self-esteem and academic confidence.
In the classroom, teachers are able to witness their students excelling in testing results and increased morale.
Equal Access to High-Quality Support in the Classroom
An online data-driven tutoring program, like Intervene K-12, can provide school districts with 3:1, 4:1 or 5:1 tutoring in small groups. Offered through the school district, online tutoring programs provide equal access to education for those students who need it the most. Students are grouped for intervention based on common misconceptions while the teacher continues to teach the rest of the class
Build Foundational Basics
Teachers’ lesson plans are often set to progress on specific timelines. Which, of course, makes sense given the amount of course material they have to cover within a school year. In order to stay on track, teachers often aren’t able to stay on a topic longer than planned to provide support for struggling students.
Tutoring programs are able to support educators by reiterating basic topics so each student has a sufficient and deep understanding to build upon. Data-driven tutoring, specifically, is able to track what basic topics students aren’t comprehending with online assessments.
With these assessments, the tutor can adjust lessons so students can stay up to speed with course material.
Tutoring Material That Aligns With Classroom Curriculum
Data-driven tutoring can be designed so lessons and timing are exactly aligned to when students would be learning the same topics at school. This eliminates the possibility of any variation between the material a student is learning in the classroom and with a tutor.
Such as situations where a student is learning multiplying and dividing fractions in class but how to calculate the area of a rectangle in tutoring lessons. With the correctly aligned coursework, students can experience higher test scores and better long-term studying habits.
And this is only scratching the surface of all the ways teachers feel supported by data-driven tutoring programs. Online tutoring, through school districts, creates a unique intersection of personalization with consistent planning.
Overall, data-driven tutoring streamlines classroom results to reach the goals teachers work to accomplish.
