Communication. Interaction. Support.
Often tutoring services employ a range of professionals or students who excel in a particular discipline. TTO, LLC founder Dawn Denham is a career teacher with 25+ years’ experience teaching English, Writing, and the Humanities in multiple contexts, including independent and public high schools, university and community college, and Adult Education. She understands the demands of a rigorous curriculum, the value of collaboration with educators, parents and students, and has a proven record of student success in and out of the classroom. Dawn has taught in the Oxford School District and worked with current English faculty members to establish the 9th and 10th grade standards for the newly instituted Standards-based Assessments. Because of this and her knowledge of the English curriculum, she is uniquely positioned to help your student navigate course content and expectations, including commonly used educational apps, long-term assignments and projects, deadlines and scheduling. TTO connects your student to math, science, and ACT prep tutors, all educators and students with experience working and learning in Oxford schools.
TTO Can Support Your Child’s Learning Now
Synchronous learning is online or distance education that happens in real time.
Asynchronous learning occurs through online channels without real-time interaction.
The pandemic has changed and will continue to change American education. Parents every day are choosing virtual learning for their students. While it can be argued there are educational gains for students in virtual classrooms, experts say students do best overall when they feel known by and closely connected to their teachers and mentors. It will be harder and harder to reproduce authentic and ongoing connection online, especially if students are required to attend only one live class daily. Teachers must “focus on relationships first,” says Youki Terada in The Research Is In: Covid-19’s Impact on Students’ Academic and Mental Well-Being.
Fear and anxiety about the pandemic—coupled with uncertainty about the future—can be disruptive to a student’s ability to come to school ready to learn. Teachers can act as a powerful buffer against the adverse effects of trauma by helping to establish a safe and supportive environment for learning. From morning meetings to regular check-ins with students, strategies that center around relationship will be needed in the fall.(Terada)
TTO wants to partner with your student and family by offering the benefits of synchronous learning through tutoring, remediation, enrichment lessons, and coaching, consistent and continuous interaction and mentorship predicated on your student’s individual needs.
My experience with Ms. Denham was wonderful. She helped motivate me to write in class. Most importantly, she cared about me outside the classroom too.
