In the process, CEURE and partner schools have improved Math and ELA scores, been able to recruit stronger teacher candidates, improved the training teachers in schools receive, and created partnerships with a variety of public and private organizations, including General Motors, M & T Bank, and AmeriCorps. CEURE collaborates with a number of community organizations and school districts to provide tutoring and homework help to K-12 students through partnerships involving our Education and Teacher Certification programs. Typically, Buffalo State education majors are recruited to work in a variety of settings, either the K-12 students' schools or in connection with after-school programming at community-based sites. Education majors are assigned based on their area of content expertise and licensure to work with one-on-one or with small groups (3-5 students). Tutors receive extensive training (minimum of 15 hours above and beyond related coursework) prior to beginning tutoring; as well as ongoing professional development, mentoring and support.
