2016-17 Peer Tutor Program Information
The Peer Tutor Program 'Students Helping Students' at Las Flores Middle School is now open for referrals and for applications from students to become tutors.
Do you like to help others? Do you have a strength in a subject area that you can share by tutoring another student? Consider becoming a Peer Tutor. Students Helping Students offers opportunities for students to help their peers whether it be working one to one with a student or working with a small group on a specific assignment. Students may also participate in Guidance department workshops designed to assist students with getting organised or developing study skills by sharing their own successful strategies with their peers. Peer Tutors may also assist with after school tutoring to provide additional support with small group tutoring with our high school tutor volunteers. Additionally, we will be partnering with Las Flores Elementary School to provide tutoring assistance in some classrooms during your lunch/PRIDE time. If you would like to apply to be a tutor, follow the Peer Tutor Interest Form link in the Student Life Locker below. You will need to sign into your school Google account to access the form.
For more information regarding the benefits for students - both tutors and tutees, please see the Peer Tutor Guide located in the locker on this page. When a Peer Tutor Referral or Peer Tutor Request Form is received, students will be matched with a Peer Tutor by the Program Coordinator, Mrs. Deborah Miller. If you have additional questions, Mrs. Miller may be reached by email at email@example.com.
Tutoring is generally arranged for once a week; there is limited availability for before or after school hours so students seeking tutoring should make themselves available at least once a week during lunch/PRIDE time
