   Honor Society Peer Tutoring-

    One-to-one peer-tutoring with an honor society tutor can be arranged for appropriate circumstances for limited time frame based on availability of tutors, typically once per week for up to one hour for a limited time. Students needing more help than the occasional or limited time frame should seek professional tutoring.  Students  interested in an honor society tutor must see their counselor (in person) for referral after trying other resources such as teacher assistance and after school lab assistance. 


    V.O.I.C.E (Volunteers of Issaquah Changing Education) Mentoring/Tutoring: community volunteers 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 must pick up an application in the counseling office, have their parents sign it, and return it to the counseling office.  Students are matched based upon availability of mentors to be paired with.


Important Note:  A tutor is there to provide academic assistance by helping a student learn and practice the process required to get answers and/or improve study habits, not to provide the answers.  A student is there to learn how to get their own answers, not just to get the answers and get their work done without learning anything. Performance on tests will display if the tutoring relationship is working in this appropriate fashion or if there is a problem with the goals of the process.
