The Washington and Lee students will be back in the building today, Monday September 19th, to provide free drop-in tutoring services to RCHS students. Tutoring will be held every Monday and Tuesday in the library from 3:15 to 4:30 PM. Tutoring in all levels of math and science as well as history and English will be available both days and Spanish tutoring will be available on Tuesdays.
The Library Media Center offers free drop-in tutoring and homework help to all students every Monday and Wednesday afternoon from 3:15 to 4:15 p.m.
Our program is staffed by volunteer W&L students. There is no sign-up to use the drop-in tutoring program. Students wishing to receive help need to report to the library directly after seventh period and sign-in at the front desk. Students need to have transportation as the library closes at 4:15 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. All students attending tutoring will receive a "proof of attendance slip". Currently there are tutors in all levels of math, English, history, Spanish with more being added daily. Updates will be coming as we add more tutors.
As Washington and Lee students leave for winter break, I would just like to take a moment to thank them for their hours of volunteer service this semester spent tutoring RCHS students. Second semester tutoring sessions will being on Monday, January 12th. They will run from 3:30 to 4:30 in the library Mon-Wed. In the interim, the library will support students with volunteer homework help.
