The after school tutoring program is for all students in grades K thru 12th who are part of the Coachella Valley Unified School District Title 7 Indian Education program. After school tutoring will be held at the Education/Library Center on the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indian Reservation each Wednesday beginning October 8th for 12 weeks (extended to February due to school breaks) from 2:30 to 5:00 pm. The focus will center on homework help and include exposing students to Native American Literature, media studies through the NLRSP blog, test prep practice and tutoring core subjects via workbooks. Tutoring will address writing skills, vocabulary building, reading comprehension, test taking strategies, math practice, technology and games in an effort to assist with homework assignments. We will also include a visual arts component. The program will alter each Wednesday with 2 groups.
