|AVID offers tutoring that is:
1. Structured: A process of repeatable steps allows for consistency across models; teachers, tutors, and students are trained on, reflective of, and continually coached in that process.
2. Student-Centered and Safe: All tutorial models are built on a foundation of relational capacity so that students feel supported while seeking solutions.
3. Inquiry-Based: Tutors and peers ask higher-order questions instead of offering answers.
4. Collaborative: Peers use their collective agency to resolve points of confusion and support each other.
5. Equitable: Defined roles and responsibilities ensure equal participation.
6. Metacognitive: Students identify where they are confused, and then summarize their new learning and reflect on the process.
