ENDORSEMENTS FROM YOUR PEERS

In addition to endorsements from teachers, counselors, administrators, and principals included in our approved Levy application, please note these heartfelt endorsements from the following principals and/or their designated UTSS Site Coordinators: 


 

“The UTSS tutors perform a major part of our day-to-day math instruction and intervention.”

 

"While many factors have played into Denny International Middle School's success with its diverse student body, UTSS tutors perform a major part of our day-to-day math instruction and intervention. The tutors make it possible for implementing individualized intensive interventions and also for differentiating the levels/paces to meet individual student’s needs in many math classrooms.

Our Math Team sincerely hopes that the partnership with UTSS continues. The tutors not only contribute to our rising academic achievement scores, but have become positive role models. Many of our students come from families with no college graduates, so it is imperative to have these invaluable interactions between the tutors and our students.”

          – Kyung Chung, Math Coach, and Jeff Clark, Principal

             Denny International Middle School


 

“University Tutors were one of the most integral parts of our Levy-funded program.” 

“As a previous Academic Intervention Specialist (AIS) for Chief Sealth High School and current AIS at West Seattle High School, I can say without hesitation that University Tutors are one of the most integral parts of our Levy-funded program. These tutors are able to make connections with students that are seemingly unreachable, and thus help us achieve our long-term goals for students’ academic performance. Their extra classroom support has proved to be the most useful academic intervention that
I have available. Having worked with UTSS in two schools with different models of support, I see that the ability to use highly capable tutors where they are needed, responding to whatever challenges each school day brings, is essential for the success of freshmen in our city’s high schools.” 

          – Sandi Whiton, Academic Intervention Specialist
