Math News

mathHello students and parents!  

The following is a math update at Weber Innovation High School.
We now have two hired tutors (both from Weber State University) who are well qualified and anxious to help.   
 
Sheryl will be at the school on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8 - 10.
 
Orlando will be at the school on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11 - 2, and on Tuesdays from 12:15 - 2:15.  
 
Please take note that Orlando will be available AFTER school gets out on Wednesday for an hour and 10 minutes.  If you/your student are/is struggling and need some extra help, this would be a great opportunity to get one-on-one help from Orlando on Wednesday after school.
 
We also have peer tutoring available and they are doing an exceptional job.  Sign up sheets for peer tutors as well as the hired tutors are available in my classroom by the door.  Tutoring sessions are blocked out in increments of 15 minutes.  If you/your student are/is struggling, I would recommend signing up for 15 minutes with a tutor each day.
 
To make the best of a tutoring session, students should come prepared with specific questions they have come across in their studies.  I encourage students to write these questions down as they think of them--regardless of whether or not they intend to meet with a tutor.
Have a great week!
