So many students have a negative outlook on tutoring, but tutoring can have a powerful impact on student learning. According to Oxford Learning, students can improve attitude toward school, encourage self-directed learning, improve self-esteem and confidence, improve work and study habits, help overcome learning obstacles, encourage freedom to ask questions, increase ability to manage own learning and improve overall academic performance.
SHS teachers provide tutoring at least two days each week outside of the normal school day. Dates and times may be found on each teacher's webpage. Activity period is also used for tutoring Monday - Thursday 8:39 am - 9:07 am.
