CVHS offers a new freshman after-school tutoring program specializing in Biology and Integrated Math 1 this year. It was created by Assistant Principal Jesse Hansen and the administration faculty after analyzing statistics of classes that freshmen need the most help in.
“The idea is that if we can help freshmen catch up in math and science now, they won’t fall behind later,” Hansen explained.
Sophomore Katie Tam works for the after-school program as a tutor. Tam stated that she had done tutoring before and that it seemed like fun.
“I like being a tutor because it’s satisfying when you help people and they understand,” Tam said.
The tutoring program is currently on an invitation-only because the administrators are still determining its effectiveness by looking at the work of students who have participated.
Tutoring happens on Mondays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Students who are interested in attending can ask their teachers or counselors to participate.
