Frontier College tutors in Partnership with York University teacher candidates and high school students assist children with homework, assignments, special projects, reading circles, as well as small groups, computer projects and individual supports with various subjects.
Children are provided with additional assistance with improving their literacy skills. Weekly lessons are planned with program staff and volunteers to ensure continuity, structure and stability for all participants. Frontier College tutors conduct reading and comprehension assessments and can also assess all participants by age and grade at the beginning of fall and the spring of each school year. This will ensure that staff and volunteers used the appropriate reading tools to assist children.
The homework program has proven to be very successful among our children, as SRRA came out on top of the reading assessments conducted within 8 different programs in the GTA.
