    Frequently Asked Questions for Students

     

    What is the Academic Support Center?

    The Academic Support Center is a place for students to get help with every subject, every block, every day.  The Center is staffed by trained student tutors who provide one-on-one conferences.  A Math Department teacher serves as the supervisor.  Students bring their assignments to Room 400 during their Eagles Connect classes on a walk-in basis. Occasionally, we will need to schedule you for a later date if the Center is particularly busy, but we will do our best to meet your needs.

     

     

    How Do I Get Permission to Come for Tutoring?

    Simply ask your Study Hall teacher for a pass to the Academic Support Center in Room 400. Once you arrive, you will sign in to the Center. Upon completion of the tutoring session, your tutor will complete a Google Form detailing what took place. This will be sent to your classroom teacher and will serve as your receipt.

     

    What Do I Bring?

    Please bring your assignment, your completed work so far, and any rubric you have been given.  You may bring hard copies of these materials or a laptop with access to them.

     

    What If My Teacher Requires Me to Come for Tutoring?

    Then attendance is mandatory.  If you have been referred by a teacher, it means that he or she thinks you will benefit from working with a peer tutor.  Please come to the Academic Support Center with an open mind and a willingness to improve your academic skills.
