Peer Tutoring Program Resumes

Vol: 82 Issue: 1

Due to COVID restrictions, our school's Peer Tutoring program had been pending for more than one year. Thankfully, the program is now up and running.

Some students might need help from tutors with their homework or tests to improve their grades; some might want to offer support to their peers to gain a sense of achievement or to get school service hours for the National Honor Society. Now, it is time for these students to realize their goals by participating in the Peer Tutoring Program!

This article is going to introduce how to apply for the peer tutoring program in detail.

If you want to be a tutor:

Step 1: Go to W101 (West Middle).

Step 2: Take a "tutor application form" and fill out some basic information.

Step 3: Circle all the subjects that you are able to tutor and provide your availability. 

Step 4: Go to your teachers to sign a signature for you (You only need one teacher for each subject you choose. For example, if you want to tutor Algebra 1, Geometry 1, and Algebra 2, getting a signature from one of your math teachers is enough.)

Step 5: Hand in this application form to W101.

If you want to get help from a peer tutor:

Step 1: Go to W101 (West Middle).

Step 2: Take a "tutoring request form" (Please notice there are two different application forms for tutors and students!)

Step 3: Choose the subject(s) you need and provide your availability.

Step 4: Submit.

Once a tutor's and a student's need and availability match, both the tutor and the student will receive a slip in  their Cor mailboxes. The slip will ask the tutor and the student to meet at W101 after Cor to set a time for their future meetings (usually once a week). When the meeting time is decided, the tutor and the student will receive a log-in sheet, which they need to sign after every session.
