FAQ's

 

How do I get my son/daughter signed up?

You don't. Your student may come in the Library, sign their name and academic subject in which they need assistance. Tutors check the sheet and offer help accordingly.

Can my son/daughter come in and get one-on-one help?

Not usually. A tutor might be helping 3-5 students at a time in a particular subject. 

How long can I "make" my son/daughter come in for tutoring?

This is a strictly voluntary program. Students needing academic assistance may come all 4 days, once per week, once per month, 30 minutes at a time, etc. He/she must determine how much help he/she needs to accomplish a certain goal.

Can the supervising staff keep track of my student?

No. Since this is a voluntary after-school program, students are free to come as late or leave as early as they wish within the scheduled hour.

My son/daughter is failing classes and her teacher is requiring that he/she get tutoring. Can you enforce that?

No. Any agreement made between the teacher, parent and student to attend tutoring becomes the student's responsibility.

My son/daughter doesn't need any help, only additional time to do homework. Can he/she just come in after school?

Absolutely. Many students need to finish homework, projects or use the computers to work on an assignment. No signing in required.
