Paid Training Video: Tutor Fault Tags

A few weeks ago, our Training Coordinator, Sharon Matsuoka, reached out to you with a brief survey to help us understand where your confusions were surrounding Tutor Fault Tags.

We used this information to create a new PlayPosit training video that focuses on how these tags are assigned, as well as how they can be avoided.

Using the image link below, please log in to PlayPosit, watch the video, and answer the interactive quiz questions. Complete this assignment before July 20th to earn 30 minutes of compensation. We have no doubt that you will find this webinar-style video informative!

If you have not yet received your PlayPosit credentials or need help logging in, please email tutor.support@yup.com.

Every month we will be drawing a winner at random to win this bonus prize – you can be entered up to 4 times per month for every week your composite score is greater than or equal to 9.0.


COMMENT OF THE WEEK #8

Comment of the Week? More like Comment of Year! Although the student forgot to tag the session with any positive tags, their comment makes it clear why this week, Carina Seah takes the prize!

The best tutor I have ever had. She really worked with me and explained the topic in many different ways in order for me to really understand. She also didn’t make me stressed about anything as she told me everything in the simplest way and she helped me learn so many different things in such a short amount of time. Thank you for the amazing help, not even my teacher would have explained it this good.”

Although this week’s session is a bit longer, we encourage you to read it and see how simply this tutor explained a trickier Chemistry concept!

MathEd in the News + CotW #5

SUGGESTED READ – MathEd in the News

The following article examines the evolution of mathematics education in American classrooms and curriculum as emphasis has shifted away from memorizing facts and towards understanding underlying concepts and processes:

“This is where successful math education starts; with adults who know what questions to ask and who have the skills to help children discover their own solutions.”

April QA Drawing + Detailed Session Feedback Form

APRIL COMPOSITE QA SCORE DRAWING WINNER

Congratulations to our winner of the $250 QA Score bonus drawing for the month of April, Carina Seah!

Every month we will be drawing a winner at random to win this bonus prize – you can be entered up to 4 times per month for every week your composite score is greater than or equal to 9.0.


DETAILED SESSION FEEDBACK FORM

In our first webinar, a number of you mentioned the need for more detailed session feedback.  Based on this suggestion, we have developed the new Detailed Session Feedback Form! This form is very similar to submitting a session dispute – however with this form rather than disputing a grade, you are submitting sessions in order to get more detailed feedback on how you can improve.

Maybe there is a specific tag that you continue to be baffled by, a rubric standard for which you often lose points, or maybe there is a particular student that you can never seem to connect well with. Whatever the issue, simply submit the form and we will get back to you. A few things to keep in mind:

  • The discussion will revolve around the session you submit.
  • We can only accept 1 session per tutor per week due to time constraints.
  • This initiative is on a two week trial and, as such, we can only guarantee a response to the first 50 submissions.

Happy Tutoring!
