The TIME Clinic
The TIME Clinic: Tutoring Intervention & Mathematics Enrichment is a research clinic housed in the School of Teacher Education and Leadership in the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services at Utah State University. The TIME Clinic provides mathematics tutoring services that specialize in elementary mathematics instructional support for children. Tutors in the clinic use research-based strategies and individualized tutoring to help elementary-aged children strengthen their understanding of mathematics. Researchers in the clinic study instructional methods, materials, and technology to determine effective methods that improve students’ mathematics achievement.
Services begin with a diagnostic test to determine a child’s level of mathematics understanding. Instruction includes targeted concept development using hands-on materials and technology. Tutors provide one-on-one instruction and are specialists in helping children reach their academic goals. Children’s progress is measured by performance on tutoring assessments and attitudes towards mathematics. Tutors conduct ongoing evaluations to inform parents of their child's progress and suggest ways to support the child's progress at home.
