On Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, teachers generally remain in their rooms for 30 minutes after the school day ends to work with students whom the teacher determines need extra help. Such extra help sessions are at the invitation of the teacher only and designed for the student who is struggling academically. A teacher may require attendance. Such extra help sessions will generally be in small groups rather than one-on-one. The school does not charge for extra help sessions.
There are some of these days, however, when a teacher is performing an after-school duty or activity and, as such, is not in his or her room for the extra help session. A boy and parent should confirm with the teacher that he/she will be holding the extra help session on the given day and that the boy has been invited or required to attend.
Parents seeking additional tutoring beyond the standard extra help sessions should contact Lindsey Robinson, Director of Academic Support, who will place students for individual tutoring and enrichment services for an appropriate fee.
