Math Support @DHS

Struggling with your math class? Free help is available.

Math Center

Every day, during every lunch period, a certified math teacher is on duty in the Math Center, ready to help any student who needs some extra help. Students are expected to come prepared with specific questions they're stuck on. Please click this link for more information about how to prepare and what to expect in Math Center.

Your regular math teacher can provide you with a pass to the Math Center for your lunch period, or if you have a study hall during periods 5-8. Or, if you realize you need some help last minute, speak with one of the teachers on duty in the cafeteria, and they will give you a pass and have you sign out. Once you arrive, be sure to sign in on the Math Center sign in sheet!

NHS Tutoring

National Honor Society students are available in the library from 2:15-3:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting in late September. This free, drop-in tutoring is available to any student who would like some help. No appointment is necessary. Be sure to arrive in the library by 2:35 at the latest!

Extra Help @School

The DHS Math teachers want to see our students succeed. Many of our teachers meet with students for extra help either before or after school, and seasonally depending on coaching or extracurricular advising commitments. If you are struggling, speak with your teacher! He or she can often make the best recommendations to help you get help!

Private Tutoring

If you'd prefer private tutoring, you can contact your guidance counselor or Mrs. Hutchinson (math supervisor) for a recommendation. Some of our teachers tutor privately, and we can put you in contact with someone who is currently taking on new students. The cost of private tutoring would be the responsibility of the student's family.
