All students learn in different ways. This is part of the beauty of individuality, but it can also be a special challenge when tackling difficult school subjects. At Tekonsha Community Schools, we have asked some of our highest achieving students for help making sense of these subjects. They have responded by volunteering their time and knowledge to help their fellow students succeed by becoming Peer Tutors. Peer to Peer Tutoring is a supervised program designed to provide a safe, fun, and academically healthy environment for middle and high school students working to improve their grades.
Tutoring will be available Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm weekly. Plenty of excellent tutors capable of helping with almost every subject, from Spanish I to Pre-Calculus, will be available.
All students coming to tutoring must bring something to work on. This is not an after school hangout. A lot of students use this time as a study hall or extra time to work on E2020, as well as to get help with difficult subject matter. Students who show up unprepared to work can become a distraction to other students.
Rudeness (or any inappropriate behavior) will not be tolerated. Students who argue with or insult peer tutors or other students will be asked to leave. If they require a ride home, their parents will be called.
All students (including tutors) are expected to sign in and out. Attendance is recorded for the year, so if there are any questions regarding whether or not a student is actually attending tutoring, the information is easy to find.
