Welcome to the
Betty Holden Stike
Education Laboratory at UNCW

The Betty Stike Education Laboratory in the Watson College of Education at UNC Wilmington is designed as a critical component of our teacher education programs. Students practice the methods they are learning in their courses by teaching a child in a one-on-one setting.

Tutoring is designed as a positive experience, focusing on the child's strengths, needs, and interests. Students are coached as they learn new strategies and skills in reading, writing and mathematics. Open communication with parents is also an important part of the Ed Lab experience.

While we use the term tutoring, the time our future teachers spend with their children is more appropriately called one-on-one instruction. Ed Lab teachers plan individualized lesson plans for each session.

Ed Lab Tutoring Information Spring 2022!

The Ed Lab will offer ONLINE elementary and middle grades tutoring (Kindergarten - 8th grade) during Spring 2022. Tutoring will be twice a week for approximately one hour. Tutors and parents will decide on a regular schedule. The window for tutoring is Monday-Thursday 9:00am - 6:00pm, Fridays 9:00am-2:00pm. The tutoring fees are reduced ($100 for the full semester) and will be paid using an online payment system. Because of the reduced fees, we will not offer any other discounts.

To participate in tutoring, you must have reliable internet access as well as a laptop or desktop computer. Mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones are not appropriate for the interactive teaching techniques our tutors use. Note that Ed Lab tutors plan and teach individualized lessons as part of their teacher preparation coursework, therefore tutoring time is not used to complete schoolwork or homework.
