To provide students with extra help, National Honor Society (NHS) offers tutoring after school Tuesdays through Thursdays.

“Not all teachers can be available every day after school; especially coaches who have other responsibilities,” NHS Sponsor Erica Marburger said. “This gives students a chance to receive free tutoring if their teacher isn’t there.”

Senior Alan Tang said tutoring benefits both him and the student.

“I became an NHS tutor to help others learn material they might need help with,” he said. “This also allows me to better understand material because I have to explain and teach it to others.”

Tutors have taken or are currently taking upper level math and science classes.

Tang said, “What’s important about peer tutoring is realizing people learn different ways and our job is to give our own understanding and expand on what they know.”
