In October 2021, new program leader Chris Baca and Alexa Jaramillo relaunched the Embudo Valley Tutoring Association-Embudo Valley Library Afterschool Program. Operating in the library orchard, the program features enrichment and science activities. Homework help with tutor Karen Bozik is also available to those who need it. The EVTA-sponsored portion of the program is funded by the NM Economic Development Division and local donors.
In-school tutoring: EVTA is unique among tutoring programs because our tutors work in the schools during the school day, under the supervision of the teachers, to support students in any way requested. Therefore, any student is able to have access to EVTA's tutors on a regular basis. It is because of regular, frequent tutoring throughout the school year that 85% of EVTA's students improve.
For students of all ages. Tutoring is provided at the local library or at local school sites. Our school partners include Dixon Elementary School, Velarde Elementary School, San Juan Elementary, Arroyos Del Norte Elementary and Anansi Charter School.
Embudo Valley students enjoy interesting and creative educational activities, with an emphasis on outdoor learning, four afternoons a week from August – May each year through EVTA's collaboration with the Embudo Valley Library to provide the discovery learning Afterschool Program.
Provided each year for four weeks, July – August, to help students improve their skills for the next grade. Students receive individual tutoring or small group tutoring in any subject needed.
Because it is difficult for students with reading disabilities to get individualized instruction in their schools, and because they do not learn by traditional methods, EVTA has made it a priority to train our tutors in multisensory and systematic phonetic instructional techniques. Students with disabilities are empowered to learn because they are presented with concepts they can experience through multiple sensory pathways and mastery of which they can attain at each level.
Students engage their math and language skills through financial literacy and culturally relevant business-related activities of their choosing.
