How Saga Coach Can Set Educators Up for a Successful School YearJuly 22, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted students at all levels, and while we’re hopefully through the worst, the need to accelerate student learning to make up for a year lost remains. As summer winds down and the start of the new school year approaches, teachers are gearing up for the next academic term. A good way for any professional working with school-aged children, from tutors to aspiring educators, paraprofessionals to co-teachers, is to explore the services of Saga Coach. This free, self-paced training program is a great tool to use to supplement your existing teaching skills.
The program will help you in three key areas that Saga refers to as the 3 R’s—relationships, ratio, and rigor. Essentials to effective tutoring and educational guidance, these focus areas help educators learn how to engage students on any level. Relationships, in particular, are at the center of effectively working in education. “Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care,” is a long-time motto of the most effective teachers. Our training program gives you the tools you need to truly connect your students so that they feel comfortable and open to learning.
Many educators who are a part of after-school programs and tutorial groups will benefit from utilizing Saga Coach. With our effective tutor training, you work with students to improve their grades, think outside of the box while learning, and boost their confidence when it comes to academics.
Saga Coach provides tutors and educators an evidence-based approach to helping young learners. It also helps build the capacity of educational institutions and organizations so that they can continue doing what they do successfully. Because of this, our easy-to-use program has received many positive reviews like this one from Roseanna Ander, Executive Director of the University of Chicago Urban Lab:
“One of the things I think is so special is the fact that Saga Education is really focusing on how to have an impact at scale. What you are doing is so revolutionary in the nonprofit space. So many nonprofits do what they do as their intellectual property and aren’t so willing to share and do things open source in the way you are. So I think, in many ways, you are not only shaking up education, but also an exemplar in the nonprofit sector, that is still way too rare if we are going to solve any of the long-term social policies challenges in this country.”
