Holcomb Bridge Middle School (HBMS) partnered with FEV Tutor in the 2016-17 Academic Year to deliver an intensive Math Intervention program ahead of the Georgia Milestones Exam to address a gap in support services for their 8th Grade students. HBMS administrators first identified 8th Grade Math students who did not achieve proficiency on their 7th Grade Georgia Milestones Assessment. The goal of the program was to help bridge skill gaps so that by the time students finished 8th Grade and entered High School, they would be better prepared to transition into their 9th Grade Algebra 1 classes rap.
Before the launch of the program, FEV Tutor’s Education Team met with HBMS teachers and administrators to identify common pain-points and areas in need of improvement among participating students. The FEV instructional team then developed a general learning plan for all participating students that was adapted and differentiated to each student’s need level throughout the four month tutoring initiative facebook video privat herunterladen.
“My classroom teacher, she is usually walking around, not focused on one student. [But] my tutor gets to help me, and only me so that’s why I like having a tutor…I was not passing my math class before, [but] now that I was going on tutoring and somebody was helping me, I am now passing Math!”
— Anaya Stanislas, 7th Grade Student
Students met 1-on-1 with their own professional tutor twice a week during the school day throughout the Spring semester to work on lessons designed to boost students’ pre-Algebra skills ahead of the Georgia Milestones assessment herunterladen. Identified Learning Strands included: Slope, Functions, Writing Linear Equations and Functions, and Graphing Linear Equations.
Students did not move onto a new topic until they showed concept mastery. Each online tutoring session concluded with a formative exit ticket, if a student scored a 75% or lower on their exit ticket the tutor would re-teach and review the learning strand with students during the next tutoring session herunterladen.

“I’ve been teaching this class, or a class like this, for four years now and this is the first time I am not stressed about a student getting what they need audio treiber windows 10 download kostenlos. I feel like FEV allowed that to happen. Without FEV I feel like I [would not] be able to reach my students on everything, I’ve just been able to reach little points that I know everyone needs, but FEV really helps allow me to make sure my kids get individualized learning every time, every week. I feel like, growth wise, I’m being a lot more successful in making sure my kids hit their goals…it takes the stress off of me.”
