Hello, I'm a third year Math Education Student with the First Nations University of Canada (located at the University of Regina, Regina, Saskatchewan). 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?
