Peer Tutoring 12
If you are thinking about tutoring to help you pay your way through post-secondary school, this course will give you the skills and experience to stand out from the competition. Students who enroll in peer tutoring will attend training sessions during term 1 tutorial periods that will earn them a tutoring certificate verifying that they have specialized training that most other tutors do not have. Successful peer tutors may also receive reference letters from the teachers who supervise their peer tutoring block. Most peer tutors will work with Academic Strategies classes, but may also be assigned to support younger students in other academic classes. Volunteer hours may be gained by helping out in Homework Club or through WCP, and those hours can be used for Grad Transitions, scholarship applications and your resume. If you want to build your resume while helping others do better in school, this is definitely the course for you.
Students enrolled in Peer Tutoring will initially have a free block during the month of September. This policy is designed to compensate them for the fact that they will have to give up some personal time in order to complete the training sessions. Once the majority of their training is complete, they will be assigned to a class and a supervising teacher, and they will no longer have a free block.
Peer Tutoring 12 is open to grade 11 and 12 students with good academic standing. If you are interested in being a peer tutor during the coming school year, please fill out this application form and submit it to Ms. Liew's mailbox in the office:
