Provide Students With Tutors
Great Leaps Reading
Great Leaps Reading Program is designed to help students overcome a variety of reading problems, and has an established track-record of students responding with significant gains. Great Leaps Reading is widely implemented across the country. CCCFS has partnered with Hayesville Elementary and Middle Schools to implement Great Leaps Reading since 1998. Great Leaps Reading is available for student’s grades 1-6.
Great Leaps is a supplemental reading program that is divided in three major areas: (1) Phonics: developing and mastering essential sight-sound relationships and/or sound awareness skills; (2) Sight Phrases: mastering sight words while developing and improving focusing skills; and (3) Reading Fluency: using age-appropriate stories specifically designed to build reading fluency, reading motivation, and proper intonation.
Great Leaps Math
CCCFS has partnered with Hayesville Elementary and Middle Schools to implement Great Leaps Math. Great Leaps Math is available for student’s grades 1-6. The Great Leaps Math Program focuses on building fluency in the basic facts, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It features concrete lessons (using manipulative objects) and representational lessons (using student drawings) to help the student understand the concepts behind the four basic math operations. During the 5 to 7 minute session, the tutor follows the word GREAT as a mnemonic device to conduct a five-step lesson plan. The student moves from oral practice lessons to written fluency lessons to written generalization fluency lessons.
Once the student demonstrates understanding through the concrete and representational lessons, fluency-building lessons begin through one-minute timings of oral and written student responses to math facts. The student repeats the one-minute timings until a standard practice rate on oral timings and a standard fluency rate on written timings are achieved.
English as a Second Language
Tutors work with students on their English skills and school work, helping them function in classroom settings.
Individual Focus Tutors

Small Group & Classroom Tutors
