National Honor Society Tutoring
Students in need of extra help can always turn to the NHS tutors. Students will be paired with a Junior or Senior that has experience in the subject matter. For example, if a student has an upcoming test in Geometry and needs one-on-one assistance, a NHS tutor who has taken Geometry and maintained a 3.6 or higher in the course can be of help! The objective is to create opportunities for students to receive one-on-one attentive assistance from other students who have recently taken the course and were successful. Students are available in all subjects, as well as Study Skills and Organization.
Please use the form below to request tutoring support from NHS Members.
