Spark Student Motivation: Student Led Tutoring

Let's Spark Some Student Motivation!
I'm so excited to share this post with you today!
 This is a new idea for me this year, technically it's not MY idea at all!
STUDENT LED TUTORING
One of my students, who is very strong in math and a leader in my class, noticed a couple of my girls were very upset after receiving their scores on a math assessment and asked me if she could help when they had free time. Of course, I thought this was a wonderful and thoughtful idea, but there was one problem...free time. We don't have enough time to get everything done as it is, never mind free time! So, we arranged for after school tutoring. The first session was on the spur of the moment, I texted the two parents to see if they could stay after that day for extra help and they said yes right away!
 It started out with two girls being tutored and has grown to four! They stay after for an hour and work on math concepts they're having difficulty with. It's the BEST concept EVER! So many reasons to implement this...friends like learning from friends (they think it's FUN!), it's a great self-esteem booster for ALL of them, they're ALL learning, and I get to sit in the background and take care of all other tasks and only interject when necessary!
 They've met four times now (once a week) and if I'd let them, they'd add more sessions! My student tutor goes over previous math assessments/assignments and makes up her own problems. I LOVE listening in on their conversations, it's so funny when you hear a student teach and act like you do in the classroom. She's very encouraging and doesn't make them feel inadequate if they don't get it right away. After one of one the problems she assigned, I overheard her say, "Ok, I see everyone is having trouble with this, so let's start from the beginning." It was too cute!
 They use dry erase boards to practice. I wanted my student tutor to "be like a teacher", so I equipped her with tickets and a trophy to put stickers on to recognize their progress. :)
Now, after every assignment and assessment, my student tutor asks, "Mrs. Miller, how did they do on their math? Do they need to stay after with me?" I love the leadership role she's taken in our classroom to help her classmates' learning!
 
The parents of these students are super appreciative and think it's a wonderful idea of students helping other students. It's a wonderful motivator I plan to keep!
 
 
 
I hope you had a wonderful week! Please link up any lessons, ideas, tips, tricks, incentives, ANYTHING you do get your students motivated or excited!

    1. The effectiveness of IEEE Project Domains depends very much on the situation in which they are applied. In order to further improve IEEE Final Year Project Domains practices we need to explicitly describe and utilise our knowledge about software domains of software engineering Final Year Project Domains for CSE technologies. This paper suggests a modelling formalism for supporting systematic reuse of software engineering technologies during planning of software projects and improvement programmes in Final Year Projects for CSE.

      Software management seeks for decision support to identify technologies like JavaScript that meet best the goals and characteristics of a software project or improvement programme.

      Aim of technology domain analysis is to describe the class of context situations (e.g., kinds of JavaScript software projects) in which a software engineering technology JavaScript Training in Chennai can be applied successfully

  2. What an awesome idea! I love how your student completely took the initiative and is willing to help out and take on a big leadership role. That's a teacher in the making! :)

    I've got some super-smarties that I might try to encourage to do the same!
