Limestone Tutoring Resources

As part of the Ministry of Education Tutoring Grant, LDSB is offering an afterschool drop-in Virtual Tutoring Program for Limestone students in Grades 1 to 10Students in Grade 1 to 3 work with tutors to build early literacy skills through phonological awareness and phonics activities. Two new links for students in Grades 4 to 6 now provide literacy support and the other two links for tutoring for Grade 4 to 6 provide Homework HelpTutors provide  Homework Help for students in Grades 7 to 10.

Guidelines for Virtual Tutoring for Limestone Students 

  1. The student must be logged in to MS Teams using their Limestone account. The student’s camera and microphone should be on so that the student and tutor can communicate effectively.

  1. The student should have the materials they need with them (e.g., students should have their homework assignment). The student should try to set up in an area in the home with minimal distractions for the tutoring session. 

  1. There are four (4) tutors available for each grade group each night and students can join a tutoring session by clicking on any of the four links for their grade level.

  1. If a tutor is already working with a student, subsequent students will be placed in the lobby of the meeting and then be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis once the tutoring session for the previous student is completed. Tutoring sessions will be about 15 minutes long and may be extended, if no other students are waiting. Please try all the links for your child’s grade level before waiting in the lobby for a tutoring session. It is important that you use only the links for your child’s grade level since the tutors provide specialized instruction.
