Tutoring Ideas for Students
1. Select someone in each class as your "study buddy." Contact them after school if you need clarification about assignments, notes, projects and tests.
2. ASK THE TEACHER FOR EXTRA HELP. See any teacher with prior approval for 25 minutes during Pride Time up to 5 days a week. In addition, most teachers have a day or two every week that they spend helping students with homework before school, after school or during lunch. It is essential to let the teacher know you need extra help and arrange a time to get it when needed.
3. STAR time: There is study time with teacher supervision in the Leota Library, Tuesday and Thursdays from 2:30 to 4:30 pm. Activity buses are available.
4. Utilize a high school student in your neighborhood who would be thrilled to pick up a few extra bucks doing tutoring.
5. All of the King County libraries have Free Tutoring and Study Help times. This is volunteer-staffed and emphasizes study skills and active learning.
6. Woodinville High School has potential students that can tutor. Ask for the Honor Society advisor. Many students in Honor Society offer tutoring to fulfill their required community service hours. This can be free tutoring from some very sharp high school students who are familiar with the work you are doing.
7. The Northshore school district office maintains a "District Approved Tutor List" (local tutors). For a copy of this list you can call (425) 408-6015.
