The topic was first brought up by principal Kevin Molin in order to help students understand subjects they struggle with.

English teacher Katharine Wilt helped organize the tutoring sessions and is excited to watch students get the help they need.

“I’m hopeful we’re going to have kids every day. I’ve heard back from a handful of teachers that [tutoring] was a great idea. They’re encouraging their students to come,” said Wilt.

The courses being covered include: math, English, social studies and science.

The NHS students have been planning the tutoring sessions since November and are eager to start helping their fellow peers.

“[The NHS students] all thought it was a great idea and a good way to give back, and it’s not too much effort on their part. It’s easy for everybody, for both the tutor and the students that need tutoring,” said Wilt.

Ever since the idea was first pitched to the NHS, many students in the club have signed up to stay after school. Many of the dates are filled all through February to May.

Senior Hailey Miller signed up for two days and is tutoring in English and history.

“I got my sister to become a part of it by coming to them. I’m excited that anybody can sign up. If you need a little help or a lot of help, anybody can sign up,” said Miller.

Junior Kendel Abrams hopes to give struggling students a better understanding of science and math.

“I’ve always wanted to be a tutor, and I like science and math,” said Abrams. “I’m most excited to see a kid really grasp what they try to understand through out the school year. By the end of the year, they’re really scrambling and not knowing what’s going on. At that point, we’re going to start over again if they’re completely lost, and we’re going to give them a better understanding [of the subject] so they’ll be ready for the finals or they’ll be ready to get out of the final.”

Tutoring takes place every Monday and Wednesday from 3-4 p.m. in the library and will be available until the end of the school year in May.
