Tutoring will begin on September 20th, 2004. This year, the program will feature a homework help desk where students can work on assignments and ask questions. In addition to this feature, we will also be offering our state recognized tutoring/mentoring program for students that need special attention in one or more subjects.
My child receives good grades. Does he/she need tutoring?
Tutoring can be a valuable tool for students that are making good grades. The tutoring sessions will give students a chance to finish homework, get answers to questions about their schoolwork outside of normal class times, and learn valuable study skills.
How much does tutoring cost?
This tutoring program is absolutely free of charge to any student within Ironton Junior High School and Ironton High School. GEARUP is responsible for supplying the financial backing for this program so that it may be provided to as many students as possible.
