Free Math Tutoring

FREE, student led math tutoring will be offered in room A111, from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Students should arrange for their own transportation after tutoring is over. Those wishing to get help, need not stay the entire hour, but must exit the building when they are no longer interested in working.


Students wishing to attend should engage with their math teachers and let them know they will be attending, and seek advice on what should be accomplished during the help session. Space will be limited due to the size of the A111. It is very much appreciated when math teachers, students or parents email Ms. Klopfer to let confirm attendance prior to arrival. We don't want to turn anyone away due to space.
