AHVISE

*NEW* AHVISE Virtual Tutoring Program!

 

Dear Valued AHVISE Community,

 

At AHVISE we are dedicated to improving our services to better help our families living in rural/remote areas. Recently, we introduced our virtual classroom feature for volunteers and families. We have since decided to expand on this and include an online tutoring platform. This will provide new alternatives for volunteers to provide assistance to you and your family.

Below we have answered a few questions and included a step by step walkthrough on how to select this option when creating your placement. If you have any more questions please feel free to contact AHVISE for more answers.

 

What Is Online Tutoring?

 

Online tutoring is the newest development in education and is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. It works similarly to a physical classroom, and on some platforms, you can screen share. The volunteer and student can work one on one and the volunteer can assist the student with subjects they might be struggling with. We hope this platform will provide better assistance to your children living in rural areas.

 

How Does It Work?

 

The most common platform used for online tutoring is zoom, other platforms like Skype can also be used. By using zoom your volunteer can share their screen to partner read a story, or use the whiteboard to draw pictures and play activities together.

 

Why Do We Need It?

 

We understand there can sometimes be schedule conflict and your placement might not be filled on time. Living in remote areas can be challenging and we hope to eliminate these problems by providing you with different options. This platform is non-compulsory which gives you the freedom to choose what works best for you.

Can Volunteers Still Visit Us?


You still have the ability to request a volunteer to visit and help you on the farm. Online tutoring works to supplement our current program and provide you with new avenues to explore. On our website when you create a placement you will have 3 options, volunteer, online tutor or both. Then we will pair the right volunteer to your family for a great placement.
