NEHS and Peer Tutoring
By Christy Box, Grade 10

Ever feel like you need help with your math, English, science, web design, economics, or some of your other courses? You’re in luck! FLVS happens to have groups full of students devoted to helping you succeed in these subjects.

The Peer Tutors are a club of students that tutor many subjects, most notably math, science, web design, and economics. The tutors must meet rigid requirements to join the club, so they are always qualified. They also must go through customer service training to make sure they are kind and encouraging to their students. Most of the tutors have recently taken the classes they are tutoring for, so you might find them easy to relate to.

When we asked Mr. Steve Williams, the supervisor for the Peer Tutors, what the Peer Tutors were like, he replied, “I love working with the Peer Tutors. They are like an Academic All Star Team of intelligent superheroes!”

If you are looking for some English or Language Arts tutoring, the National English Honor society also does peer tutoring. If you are stuck on something in your English course, go check out the NEHS Tutors. They also must meet strict requirements to tutor, and they have recently taken the English courses. They are the perfect resource for extra help with your English.

We talked to Mrs. Swenson, supervisor of the NEHS tutors, about why students should go to their English tutoring. “I would like to encourage all of the middle and high school students at FLVS to use the NEHS tutor room. The tutor room is staffed with friendly and highly qualified National English Honor Society Students who are eager to help their peers. Please look for a link to the NEHS tutor room on your class announcement page. Our hours are : M-W–F, 11:00-1:00 and Tuesday night from 5-7pm. Also Saturday afternoon from 1-3pm.”

Check out the times for your course’s Peer and NEHS tutoring, and let the Tutors help you out.
