On-Demand Tutoring for Core Courses
Edgenuity’s® Concept Coaches are available to help you six days a week through online chat tools and interactive whiteboards. When interacting with a Concept Coach, you get real-time, one-on-one tutoring in core subject areas, so you’ll receive the guidance and support you need to understand what you’re learning so you can move forward without struggling.
The CloseReader supports the active reading of complex texts with embedded comprehension questions, text and audio prompts, translation tools, and contextual definitions of new vocabulary words.
A dynamic glossary and word look-up tool help students build their vocabulary. Transcripts and video captions allow students to follow along with the instruction, and eNotes enables students to synthesize information and record questions in a digital notebook.
This tool scaffolds the writing process for all students—from pre-writing to the final draft. Targeted writing instruction and practice in our content-area courses prepare students for narrative, argumentative, informative, and analytical writing.
