Wilson Tutoring

What is the Wilson Tutoring Program?

The Wilson Tutoring Program is an after school peer-led tutoring program. Essentially the program works by training 8th and 9th graders to be able to accommodate the questions and needs of other students in the building. Any student is welcome to come to the tutoring center after school for help. Students may come for help on just one assignment, or may come regularly for help in all content areas. The program runs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3:15-4:00.
