Hello, I'm a third year Math Education Student with the First Nations
University of Canada (located at the University of Regina, Regina,
A few weeks ago I heard a presentation about Jump-tutoring. This
tutoring concept originated in Ontario and has been designed to help
students with their math skills. The tutors are ordinary people from
the school community area that work in conjunction with the teacher to
help the students. The tutors do not need to be particularly good in
math themselves to be a tutor. From what I could glean from the
presentation, the goals of the program are twofold. One - to get the
community involved in supporting the kids education, and two - to help
the kids with their math problem areas.
I would like to get some feedback from you as to your opinion about
this type of program. Do you think that it will be advantageous to
the school, the community, and ultimately to the students?

Cordially, Robert Cropp
