V.O.I.C.E (Volunteers of Issaquah Changing Education) Mentoring/Tutoring: community members volunteer their time once a week after school on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays for an hour to help mentor/tutor students in need. Students interested in this can pick up an application in the main office, have their parents sign it, and return it to the main office.  Students are matched based upon mentor availability and area of need.


Parent Note: Tutors should provide academic support by helping a student practice the process required to independently reach answers, to understand class concepts and/or to improve study habits, not to just provide the answers for the student.  A student in tutoring is there to learn how to get their own answers while applying class concepts, so they will be able to demonstrate independent mastery on tests as a result.  By creating a test-like environment when working with a tutor, rather than a homework session, students and tutors are better able to focus on strengthening the independent demonstration of skills most important for student success.  If a student's performance on tests is far different than performance on homework done with a tutor, you may want to discuss the goals of the tutoring sessions & how to best utilize tutoring time with that tutor.
