If you are performing well and would like to help your fellow UBMS students, you are more than welcome to come to sessions to help.
Due to the availability of our tutors, this isn’t a possibility at this time.
You may, so long as you are aware that tutors may already have scheduled sessions.
Due to the nature of our federal funding, we will be unable to accommodate non-UBMS students. If you know of someone who wants to receive tutoring services, you may refer them to their school counselor or encourage them to apply to join the program.
You will be/have been paired based on need and tutor availability.
You must stay at a session for at least one hour.
Bring the homework you need help with, your Chromebook, your text book, and any questions that you have. Read over material before you meet with a tutor.
As with all of our other services, there is no cost for tutoring. However, if you fail to show up to a session without prior notice, the wages of the tutor will come out of your stipend check.
Students will be required to see a tutor at least one session a week.
We have set specific parameters to determine need. If you feel that you don’t need a tutor communicate with UBMS staff and work to raise your GPA and grades.
You are required to be at tutoring for 1 full hour during the two hour time-span. We do not expect Fond du Lac High students to be at tutoring right at 3:00pm.
If you are seeing teacher for help, we will need confirmation from that teacher each time you meet. If you are seeing a peer tutor, we need confirmation from your school counselor each time you meet.
Yes, you may, but no more than an hour a week. However, you must provide advance notice for the days you will need to come. We want to make sure there is a tutor available for the subject that you need.
If there is any type of unsatisfactory results about the UBMS services, please inform the UBMS staff immediately after they are noticed.
Contact program staff to see what other options are available.
If extracurricular activities or after-school employment interfere with the tutoring schedule, please inform the UBMS program staff as soon as possible for necessary arrangements. For any other attendance matters, please consult the policies of the UBMS Handbook. Students are required to have tutors’ permission to leave tutoring sessions.
Any absence will be treated like a missed program. Unless it is made up a stipend reduction may result.
Students who miss a tutoring session are expected to be responsible for make-up arrangements within two weeks of the missed session. Students with habitual unexcused absences are subject to being placed on probationary status.
If a student fails to attend a session without advance notice, and they are the only student scheduled to attend that session, their stipend check will be reduced by an amount equivalent to an hour of tutor wages.
Grades and GPA will be evaluate on a semester-by-semester basis. Any student who brings their grades and GPA above required amounts will no longer have to see a tutor.
Work with them to figure out why you aren’t feeling like they’re helpful. If you are unable to determine the problem, talk with program staff.
To help our students gain more understanding of subject areas with which they are struggling. This will in turn lead to higher grades, better GPAs, and networking which will lead to more opportunities to get scholarships and get into college.
Currently, math, science, and English.
Session will occur from 3:00pm – 5:00pm on the Marian Campus in Stayer Center Rooms 217/218. If for some reason this will not work for you, you will need to contact program staff.
Any student who is getting under a 2.5 GPA and/or is performing at a C+ or below in Math, English, and/or Science classes must see a tutor for the subject(s) they are performing poorly in. Students who have higher GPAs or better than a C+ may still come to tutoring sessions if they choose to.
Students may also be recommended by their parents, counselors, teachers, to take tutoring lessons, if they are not performing well in those subjects in spite of a B- or higher.
We are required by the Department of Education to meet specific standards. A certain number of our students must have a GPA higher than 2.5 each year. Any student who has a GPA higher than 2.5 may still see a tutor if they wish.
Unfortunately, you will not get more money for coming to more sessions.
Tutors will have consistent schedules. If you do or don’t like a specific tutor, communicate with UBMS staff.
At this point in time there is not a plan to have tutors during the summer session. However, if you have a need, contact program staff.
