WhyTry? A Report of an After-School Tutoring Program

Group: Rural Middle School - 70% free and reduced lunch.

Description: WhyTry was used for 10 weeks and paired with tutoring.

Results:  

  • Students reduced failing grades by 47%.
  • Each intervention group showed a decrease in the average of failing grades for the group of students following the WhyTry intervention
  • “The WhyTry Tutoring has proven to be a vehicle for working toward student success. By coupling Christian Moore’s multisensory, strength-based program with tutoring, we have seen more students take positive steps toward academic success than we have experienced through tutoring alone.” -Sherrie Wymore
