Tutoring Services

Due to overwhelming demand, we are unable to accept any new one-on-one tutoring requests at this time.


GL students are encouraged to seek assistance from NHS tutors before school and during lunch via our drop-in tutoring program.

NHS tutoring services available during the school year:

GL IMC Drop-In Before School & During Lunch:

    • The GL IMC will be staffed with NHS tutors daily before school from 7:15 - 7:45 am and during lunch. No appointment is necessary. Just sign into the IMC and head over to the tables on the side opposite of the computer stations. NHS members will be present with a sign indicating what subject(s) they tutor.

Deerfield's Homework Club in Mountainside:

    • The NHS will continue to support Deerfield's Homework Club after school once a week. Please contact Deerfield School in Mountainside for more information.


One-on-One Appointments:

    • Please click the "One-on-One Appointment Request" button below if you have a one-on-one tutoring request for your child in grade 6 or higher. If you are requesting a tutor for multiple subjects, please complete separate forms for each subject.
      • NHS tutors provide tutoring in specific subjects. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist with "general homework completion." Please request a specific subject that you/your child needs assistance in.
      • We will make every effort to accommodate your request, but please understand that NHS members are students that have other obligations (coursework, extra curricular/athletics, family, employment, etc.) and are not as readily available as private tutors. As such, NHS tutors are expected to meet with tutees for no more than once a week for one hour. Additionally, it is expected that the tutee will adjust his/her schedule to match the availability of the volunteer NHS tutor. Unfortunately our program will not work for you if you require additional tutoring outside of these conditions.
      • NHS tutors are permitted to tutor one-on-one in the IMC during the school day or at either the Berkeley Heights Public Library, the Mountainside Public Library, or any mutually agreed upon public space if the appointment is outside of the school day. NHS tutors are not permitted to tutor in private residences.
      • Additionally, it is the parent/guardian's responsibility to provide transportation for the tutee. NHS tutors are not permitted to transport tutees to or from tutoring sessions.
      • One-on-one tutoring requests are only processed during the school day. It may take upwards of a week (five school days) or more (see below) for us to find an appropriate tutor to fill your request. If you made a request when school is not in session, your request will be processed when school resumes. Please do not email NHS or the NHS advisor requesting a status update on your tutoring request. You will receive an email as soon as a tutor is found.
        • One-on-One Appointment Wait Time:
          • Once we receive a total of one-on-one requests that exceed 50% of the total membership of NHS, it becomes increasingly difficult to find available tutors and we may be unable to fulfill your request.
          • As of February 7, 2019, we have received requests totaling 83% of NHS membership.
          • Anticipated current minimum timeframe to find an available NHS tutor: 4 weeks.
          • GL students should utilize the IMC drop-in program before school and during lunch while waiting for a one-on-one tutor. You may even find your tutor by participating in the drop-in tutoring program. Please check the calendar for drop-in sessions and locations (as there are times the IMC is closed and the program is moved to an alternate location in the building).
