FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What platform do you use for one on one sessions?
We use the zoom platform. Students sign up for a session on their study hall page and click the zoom link to join. For connected and supported study hall students, students first join a zoom webinar in which they are greeted and supported before joining their one on one session
What does the Zoom study hall motivational coach do?
The motivational coach offers support, structure, and motivation for each student. Imagine a combination of a cheerleader/ concierge/ coach. In the zoom session, the coach will be direct messaging each student to see what they are working on, helping them to get started, and encouraging them verbally as they work through the block. The coach will also be reminding students of upcoming sessions and answering quick questions over text.
How does a student or parent sign up for a one on one session in a study hall?
Students or their parents can sign up for a session by going to their study hall webpage (included at signout) and putting their name at the appropriate time with the appropriate tutor. See video
For the supported study, what does the executive functioining coach do?
The executive functioning coach meets one on one with a student and helps a student structure their day. The coach will help a student to identify what assignments are most pressing, how long each will take, check in on outstanding work, and help make a reasonable plan to give some structure to the student.
Who benefits from each model of study hall?
Can a student (or parent) book a study hall session before the study hall starts?
My student is reluctant to book a one on one session, even though they need it. What should I do?
Many students struggle to reach out initially, particularly with a tutor they don't know. That's why the 1st session with a new tutor is free. It gives the student and tutor an opportunity to check in. It also allows the student to meet 3 different tutors to identify who they most connect with and who they are most comfortable asking for help. Students talk about enjoying having this agency in the tutoring process.
