Individualized tutoring is offered for students who could benefit from additional instructional time. A tutor may be requested for any student whose parents/guardians and teacher(s) agree that one-on-one sessions are needed to achieve success. Tutoring may take place during the school day for those students who have study halls, or after school from 3:15-4:00 pm. Tutoring may be received on campus from a teacher or from an honors or highly recommended student. The Individualized Tutoring Program coordinator also maintains a referral list of qualified tutors who are available off-campus.
On-campus tutoring sessions are 45 minutes in duration. Student tutors will receive $15 for each 45 minute session. Teachers who tutor will receive $40 for each 45 minute session. Off-campus tutors on the referral list may negotiate their fee with parents/guardians.
Regular contact will be maintained between the tutoring coordinator, teacher, and parents/guardians to measure the effectiveness of the program for each child. Academic success in a Christian environment remains the goal of this program.
NON-TRADITIONAL COURSES – ACT
ACT preparation is also offered through the tutoring program. Students will be paired with a tutor who has scored 30 or above overall on the ACT. Areas of weakness will receive focused attention as they work through practice books and tests together, culminating in a computerized practice test.
