Notes

Abstract: Through the tutoring project and additional research, I determined multiple ways to assess students on their math skills and improve their comprehension. During each tutoring session, I chose eight third-grade students to test and tutor on different math concepts. I believed the students test scores would improve after the tutoring sessions. Each session was structured using the Mastery Model which incorporated the use of manipulatives as well as guided and independent practice. The Mastery Model allowed me to create a more authentic and organized RTI that met each student's needs. Incorporating RTI into the process was imperative because it enabled me to analyze the students' learning as well as assess my own teaching. The post-test results did not show a significant change from the pre-test; however, observing the students in the tutoring sessions showed how hands-on activities allow students to view the abstract concepts in a more concrete way.
