Tutoring

Are you looking for help in one of your classes? These are the steps you should take: 

1) Speak with your teacher! Your teacher needs to know that you want more help. If you have a hard time talking to them in class (sometimes it can be difficult to speak up when you need help), you can always send them an email asking when they could help you. The link to all teacher emails is at the top of the page here. Ask your teacher if they have tutoring time or if they know a student who could tutor you. They may also recommend tutoring being offered by another teacher. Be open to all suggestions.

2) Go to office hours! Remember that we have office hours for the 15 minutes before lunch everyday except early release Wednesdays. You do not need an appointment to go to your teacher's room during office hours, just go! Some teachers are available right before school or for a little bit after school too, so it never hurts to ask or stop by to see if they are available for quick help. 

3) Speak to your friends in class! Form a study group to help each other. 

4) We have an academic coach, Ms. Urbanak, in the media center. She can offer some tips and resources for testing or study habits and can point you in the right direction for tutoring in nearly any subject area. Stop by during lunch to see her or email her at hjurbana@volusia.k12.fl.us. 

5) Check out the math tutoring being offered by Mu Alpha Theta! Your math teacher has the most updated schedule posted in their room. They tutor during lunch in different math teachers' classrooms. They do offer individual peer tutoring when students are available. You can make a request HERE

6) If you are struggling with a writing assignment, you can reach out to Ms. Maderas to see if you can be paired with a peer tutor from the National English Honor Society. Her email is eamadera@volusia.k12.fl.us. 

7) Use your FREE Volusia County Public Library Card (see the directions HERE and then visit any branch to get one) to access Tutor.com for free live tutors between the hours of 10am and midnight! HERE are the directions for how to get set up with a Tutor.com account. 

8) Login to your school KahnAcademy.org account to search videos and lessons on all kinds of topics that will help you with your classes. 

9) Check the school counseling website where they are compiling lists of tutoring opportunities HERE!

The most important thing is that you get the ball rolling by asking for help!
