Academic Support

ACADEMIC SUPPORTS, STRATEGIES AND SKILLS
It is always most beneficial to seek out help at the first sign of difficulty and sometimes even meeting with a teacher or tutor once or twice can make a big difference.  Even “A” students may find it helpful to get extra help from time to time. However, especially if a student is at risk of earning a D or an F in a class, it recommended that they regularly meet with a tutor or teacher.  

LATE BUS:
There is a free late bus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays that leaves at 3:45pm from the bus loop near the cafeteria.

TEACHERS:  
Teachers arrive by at least 8:20 a.m. every morning Monday-Friday & stay after school until at least 3:25 p.m., Monday- Thursday.  Let your teacher know if you would like help before or after school. They will let you know if they offer specific days or times for extra help.

MATH TUTOR:
Mr. Lusas, Room 258B (top of the stairs from the library).  Make an appointment with the math tutor to meet during your study periods or before or after school (Monday- Thursday).  

PEER TUTORS 
Upperclassmen who have taken and succeeded in classes volunteer to tutor other students.  This can be arranged in many subject areas. It is recommended that students should continue to see their classroom teacher for help in addition to meeting with a Peer Tutor.  Go to www.bhspeertutoring.blogspot.com or see the Peer Tutoring wall in the library to choose an appropriate tutor.

READING AND WRITING SUPPORT:
Advanced English students are available in the Writing Center in the library;  hours are posted

OUTSIDE TUTORS: 
Your teacher or your guidance counselor may be able to refer you to an outside tutor in a specific subject area or see the Outside Tutor link.
