Credit Recovery: Summer Tutoring for Denver High School Students
In partnership with Denver Public Schools, the Center for Urban Education (CUE) recruits, hires and trains MSU Denver students as academic intervention tutors in math, science, English and social studies to help high school students earn credits in classes they did not pass the first time.
The credit-recovery program, which consists of one-on-one and computer-based tutoring, is offered each summer at sites in five areas of the city: far northeast, central, northwest, southeast and southwest. Over the course of several weeks, tutoring is available five days a week, from 8 a.m. to noon each day.
“The summer credit recovery program is a great way for pre-service teachers to not only solidify their content-delivery skills, but also develop their interpersonal abilities when working with students in multiple grades.”
– Joshua Trager, MSU Denver graduate currently teaching at Bruce Randolph School.
In 2017, CUE plans to hire about 40 tutors for the summer credit-recovery program. MSU Denver students in all discipline areas may apply, although we are particularly interested in students with academic backgrounds and experience in algebra I and II; geometry I and II; American literature; reading strategies; biology, chemistry and earth sciences; and social studies, such as U.S. history, geography and world history.
Tutors are paid $15 per hour, four hours a day, five days a week. All tutors are expected to attend a paid, half-day orientation and training; a site-based orientation the week prior to startup; and a debriefing session at the end of the program.
