To encourage our students to take an active role in their learning process and to help make learning fun, FEV Tutor introduced “My Journey” to our Online Tutoring portal this fall. Students are rewarded with points for positive behaviors, such as taking ownership of their learning, mastering new concepts, participation, and more. As students accumulate points, they earn Micro-Badges that unlock new levels on their game-board to compete with their classmates and earn privileges to customize their avatar and tutoring experience. In this post, we will examine how FEV's My Journey helps students to become self-advocates.
As a part of FEV Tutor's Rewards program we are excited to announce our next contest! We are awarding partners for their opinions on FEV's recent updates to the Online Tutoring Portal.
As an FEV Tutor user, you may have noticed that we've made some exciting updates to our tutoring platform. We've added a new gamification feature to enhance your students experience learning. Now that we've rolled out the "My Journey" experience, we want to hear what you and your students thing about the changes.
Did you know that FEV Tutor recently updated its platform to have gamification features? The My Journey update encourages students to take an active role in their learning process. On the game board, students will begin on Level 1, where they can design their very own avatar. Over time, students can level up by earning points in each of the four “My Journey” categories: Participate, Drive, Achieve, and Collaborate. Each category supports students to engage in behaviors that will help drive achievement gains and meeting their academic goals.
Did you know that FEV Tutor has an ongoing Rewards Program? We understand how valuable classroom time is and we hold ourselves accountable for making the most of students' time. To help everyone stay on track and recognize students and teachers for putting in the time necessary to make an impact on student achievement, we've created our own Rewards Program.
Our empirical data shows that our most successful tutoring programs, that drive the largest student achievement gains, are those in which our tutors are able to closely connect 1:1 instruction to the student's core classroom. There are several ways to align 1:1 tutoring with core instructional strategies, but the most direct and effective method is to collect existing district/school benchmark assessment data. In fact, FEV Tutor recently formed a partnership with NWEA to make data sharing even easier for our partner school and districts.
Attention Partners: FEV Tutor wants to reward your teachers and students for participating in FEV Tutor's Online Tutoring program!
With the end of the school year fast approaching, we wanted to take a moment to remind our partners of FEV's Rewards Program to make sure that schools can "cash-in" before time runs out.
Congrats!

This month FEV Tutor is proud to profile our partnership with Santa Ana Unified School District in sunny Southern California!
In Early December FEV Tutor and Santa Ana administrators worked together to launch a virtual tutoring program to support five of the district's Intermediate Schools. FEV is tutoring students during the school day, after school as part of an Extended Learning Program, and at home on evenings and weekends for identified SAUSD students.
We are especially excited to share details of this partnership, as Santa Ana USD offers an innovative and forward thinking approach to personalized learning.
