Just like we have high expectations for tutors, we have high expectations for your communication as well. Once you're paired, we expect you to be considerate of your tutor's time. Sign up for a peer tutor with Mr. Hefferan-Zelaya or Ms. Townzen at the library circulation desk so that we can match you with the right student.
No tutors are available for Honors and AP courses. Please reach out to your counselor for further assistance.
Thank you for your interest in helping fellow Monarchs excel in their studies. The Peer Tutoring Program is a great opportunity to develop your interpersonal, communication, and listening skills, which are transferable for future work and internship opportunities. Most of our tutees need guidance with the subject matter and tips on good organization.
The time commitment ranges depending on the needs of your tutee. Most students should expect to meet an average of 1-2 peer tutoring sessions per week that are about an hour long. If you have any issues with availability, please communicate these challenges with Mr. Heffernan-Zelaya as soon as possible. Although hours dedicated toward the Peer Tutoring Program count as service hours, you should also take into account the professional experience you gain working with students and school staff. Mr. Heffernan-Zelaya and Ms. Townzen are happy to write letters of recommendation for our tutors.
