In an effort to provide students with extra help, West Union High School has launched a new tutoring program. For three days each week, a team of teachers volunteer their time to tutor students in various subjects. The tutoring sessions are open to grades 7-12 and students can bring any type of assignments or missing work that they may need help with.
Although the program is new, many students have already showed improvement in their classes simply by staying after school and seeking assistance. Mr. Aaron McCann, math teacher at WUHS, enjoys having the tutoring program because it “gives the students a weekly, scheduled time, where they are guaranteed to receive the help that they need.”
Mr. Jason Little, also a math teacher at WUHS, adds that he finds the tutoring program useful because the students that need extra help do not always have time to receive that help in the minutes allotted for class time.
WUHS will continue the tutoring program throughout the year, and the schedule will be as follows: Tuesday is Language Arts, Wednesday is Science and Social Studies, and Thursday is Math. Each tutoring session runs after school until 3:45 pm.
