Peer Tutoring for Connect HS Students

A message from the Connect High School Tutoring Club Leaders:

We have recently started a tutoring program where a group of students who are doing well in a particular subject sign up to spend 30 minutes after school tutoring their fellow students. We offer services to both cohorts, Mondays and Tuesdays from 3:15-3:45 pm.

It is a drop-by program so anyone who needs help can stop by and get help – there is no need to sign up! We focus particularly on homework help and less on concept understanding, as that is something teachers already do. We offer math tutoring up to Pre-Calculus and other subjects such as English, Psychology, and SNHU. We are working on expanding what we offer, so if you are interested in being a tutor and want something that looks good on your college resume, come by for more information.

For more information, contact:
