Jack KhuuWith guidance from Team Read staff and literacy specialists, Team Read alumni Jack Khuu and Teens in Public Service (TIPS) intern Robel Gebremichael are creating a series of training videos for new and current teen reading coaches. These videos will be easily accessible on a password protected Team Read YouTube channel. Topics will include:

  • How to effectively work with beginning readers
  • How to inspire your student’s best behavior during tutoring
  • Best practices for using Reading Guides and other Team Read materials

The videos will contain clips of Team Read’s reading coaches that serve as examples of what to do in given situations, as well as voice-overs that narrate those situations. When asked about the importance of this video series to current tutors, Jack says, “I definitely wish I had something like this to reference. It really is a useful tool for tutors if they ever find themselves needing help during the year.”
