Credit Recovery: Summer Tutoring for Denver High School Students
In partnership with Denver Public Schools, the Center for Urban Education (CUE) recruits, hires and trains MSU Denver students as academic intervention tutors in math, science, English and social studies to help high school students earn credits in classes they did not pass the first time.
The credit-recovery program, which consists of one-on-one and computer-based tutoring, is offered each summer at sites in six areas of the city: far northeast, central, northwest, northeast, southeast and southwest. Over the course of several weeks, tutoring is available five days a week, from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 pm each day
“The summer credit recovery program is a great way for pre-service teachers to not only solidify their content-delivery skills, but also develop their interpersonal abilities when working with students in multiple grades.”– Joshua Trager, MSU Denver graduate and former teacher at Bruce Randolph School
