Tutoring, specifically Alphie's Alley, is designed for lower level students who are struggling with phonemic awareness. Students who are usually placed in tutoring are either roots kids who are struggling with sound recognition and beginning wings kids who are struggling with some of their sounds. Use teachers to help form a schedule so that you are not pulling kids during something they really need. Also, identify who's getting tutored in each quarter in DART.

Assessment and Planning

Alphie’s Alley provides animated assessments that allow the tutor to identify the exact level of each student. Based on these assessments, Alphie’s Alley then generates a tutoring plan with guided assistance for the tutor. Each plan recommends a list of activities, their objectives, and explanations if needed. Tutors have the option of carrying out the generated plan or adjusting it as they see fit.


In addition to assisting the tutor in structuring each tutoring session, the student-tutor module contains 18 digital activities, such as Auditory Blending and Segmenting, Letter Sounding, Letter Identification, Word-level Blending, Spelling, etc. The activity level is customized for each student and is based on his or her initial assessment.
