National Honor Society is offering tutoring in any subject every Monday and Wednesday.

NHS tutoring is usually a small, one-on-one learning environment with no more than ten people. There is no grade limit; A’s or F’s, it does not matter to them. The tutoring is free, and you do not need to sign up. You can walk in and get help from your peers.

“Mainly, it’s students helping students,” Spanish teacher Suzanne Verhelst said.

The tutors enjoy helping their classmates.

“I think it’s very good; I get to help them succeed in academics,” senior Alicia Caruso said.

The experience not only helps the learners, but the teachers as well.

“You have to remember the old stuff and [when] freshmen come in you have to remember what you learned from [your] freshman year,” Caruso said.

You can joke around a bit, make new friends, and learn all at the same time.

“They understand, and it helps them,” Verhelst said.

“I think [students] understand it better if they have someone their own age teach it to them,” said Caruso.

Coming in for the first time, people can be apprehensive, but tutoring can help you with your grades. With exams right around the corner, now is a good time to take advantage of this great opportunity.

“This is the first time I’ve come here, and it’s pretty cool; [my tutor is] doing well,” sophomore Danielle Yant said Monday afternoon.

NHS tutoring sessions are in room 230 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
