Our Response to COVID-19:
NRICH Tutoring is geared up for online tutoring. Since March 16, 2020, students and tutors have been meeting online. As of June 1, 2020, parents will have the option of bringing their child into our New Richmond office or staying online.
Our tutoring sessions continue online with Zoom meetings. We can work with students anywhere in the U.S. Contact us if your child needs support with their work while they are at home.
In-Person Tutoring at our New Richmond WI location:
All students will be given a temperature check when they come in. We have plexiglass germ guards on tutoring tables, hand sanitizer, and cleaning between each student. Students will have individual kits for all their supplies.
The waiting room will be closed for now and there are 15 minutes between sessions so families do not overlap and so there is time in between to clean.
Students who meet in the office will be able to check out books (which will be quarantined for 7 days upon return). The prize box will now be the prize table so options are easy to see without touching.
SMALL GROUPS: We have space for six students to have their own learning space and to be 6' away from others. We will do temperature checks for each session and each desk will have hand sanitizer. Students will have their own supplies; masks may be required, per county requirements for public spaces.

Approaches to Learning
Each learner has individual needs and learning styles. Tutoring sessions begin with needed academic work but also include enrichment activities, which provide a means to motivate and engage students with hands-on, minds-on learning. These empower the learner by tapping into their interests and personalizing learning.
In the classroom, the pace may be too fast or too slow. Key concepts may be missed due to this or if a child has too many absences. With tutoring, we go at the pace of each student.
Students with Dyslexia may be unable to keep up with reading assignments; they need extra help to retrain their brain with a structured literacy approach. Check out our information on the Reading + Math Lab where we can help students with Dyslexia and those with Dyscalculia (math difficulties).

"Time spent in the classroom is simply not enough for teachers to instruct every student, to teach them what they need to know. There must, inevitably, be some interaction outside school hours."
