To make the most of your ELP experience, it is essential that you develop a regular communication system with your tutor.  Upon your initial meeting with them, decide if email or phone is the best way to stay in touch, and determine a regular periodic check-in.  Tutors can better serve you with feedback on their students’ progress as well as recommendations for literature and strategies that you may employing in class.  Although they should have a copy of the school calendar, it’s also helpful to remind them of schedule changes such as minimum or in-service days.
