    Anoka Hennepin Indian Education offers limited tutoring scholarships
    each trimester to participating students in our program
     
    The purpose of the academic tutoring support being offered is to focus on filling skill gaps in the areas of math and reading. Filling skill gaps rather than providing homework help will provide students with the foundation they need and help support their long term academic success as they move through elementary, middle school, and high school. Tutoring is not homework help. 
     
    We offer up to 13 tutoring scholarships to students (grades 1-12) each trimester. Eight (8) students will receive services through Yellow Parachute Learners and five (5) students will receive services through Sylvan Learning Center. 
     
    In an effort to help bring our students to grade level reading, students grades 1- 5 who are below reading grade level will have priority over other students (up to 3 Sylvan & up to 4 YPLP spots reserved) and will have the opportunity to continue their tutoring each trimester.

    Scholarships will be awarded via a random drawing of the registrations turned in during the enrollment period. Once the scholarship limit has been reached, we will keep a running list of students on a waiting list. These students on the waiting list will be first in line for the upcoming trimester to ensure they receive tutoring. They may also be the first to receive a tutor if a student currently receiving tutoring is dropped from tutoring. 
    • For example: once all eight (8) Yellow Parachute slots have been filled for Tri 1 tutoring, the next eight (8) Yellow Parachute registrations received and drawn during the first enrollment period will be given tutors second trimester.
    Scholarship recipients will be notified by the selected tutoring service. Non-recipients will be contacted by their Indian Education Advisor and placed on the waiting list.
     
    Reasons your students may be dropped from tutoring: 
    • If your student misses (no call/no show) two (2) tutoring sessions. 
      • When dropped from tutoring your student also forfeits their ability to receive other Indian Education Scholarships for the rest of the year.
