OG Based Tutoring
Small Group Tutoring
Yes, we can.
Many people will tell you that OG tutoring can't be done with a small group. But that is simply not true. With a small group, we can begin and do all 3 (Decoding, Encoding, and comprehension) parts of the lesson together while each child also gets to practice reading aloud with the tutor.

Interested in setting up a small tutoring group of your own?
If you think your family may be interested in joining an in-person small group tutoring, there are a few things to consider first.
Think about who you choose to approach: Who you choose to set up these groups with is essential to the safety of everyone involved. To minimize your risk of catching and spreading COVID-19, you’ll want to find a family that is being as careful as yours. That means a family who is spending more time at home, limiting their social contact, and wearing protective face coverings when they go out in public.
Consider a family that is similar in educational level. That may be the same grades, or on the same reading level.
Keep it small: When it comes to socially distanced group tutoring, the smaller the group the better. Aim for two to three families with 2-3 children involved.
Finally, settle on your educator. Whether you’ll be using a teacher from your community or neighborhood or working with an outside source, which can provide back-ups, insurance, and other considerations.
Sprouting Scientists has a wide variety of tutors and educators available for all subjects and all levels of learning.
