Are you struggling with Math or Science? Maybe English isn't your strongest subject? Do you really excel in specific classes and are interested in gaining Community Service hours or extra money? SPHS Parent's Club is offering a Peer Tutoring Program where students in need can receive help from a peer tutor in the subject(s) they are struggling. The Peer Tutoring Program is entirely funded and operated by the Parent's Club.
Any SPHS student who has a C- or lower in an academic class may get the personal help they need to succeed in school. Tutors are either paid $7 - $10 per hour or earn Community Service hours. The Peer Tutor must have a B+ or better in the subject area and parental permission to tutor. Application forms for both the tutors and students who need help can be picked up at any time in the Library.
Update: Peer Tutoring has expanded to include a Calculus tutoring at lunch time in Mr. Talbott Classroom. Please see him for more information.
Parent Volunteers administer the Peer Tutoring Program by matching up students, setting up appointments, supervising the tutoring in the library, keeping payroll records, and dispersing monthly payroll checks. If you are interested in helping with this program, please contact Suzanne Kindschi, Volunteer Coordinator, at 760-803-8700 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
