          remote learning AND TUTORING 


Every day our students face the disruption and uncertainty of homelessness.  On average, a child impacted by homelessness changes school 3 or 4 times each year.  The pandemic has created additional challenges, cutting off important social interactions with peers, teachers, and activities.

Predictability is critically important for our students. 

Our tutors offer a consistent, reliable and positive presence. They show up each week to champion a child's capabilities, applaud even a small achievement and help a student focus on his or her unique circumstance and potential.

Tutoring typically takes place within the child's temporary home, usually at a family shelter.  Due to the pandemic, the SOWMA Tutoring Program is currently remote.

RESOURCES FOR "READ WITH ME" REMOTE LEARNING

Tutoring sessions can be noisy. There may be a lot of foot traffic through a make-shift learning space and the student may be tired, distracted by younger siblings or experiencing "screen fatigue" after a day of online classes. To offset distractions during tutoring sessions, and engage younger pre-k siblings and housemates with early literacy, SOWMA has provide  "Read with Me" activities.
