Academic Support

Your teachers are the best source for understanding the subjects they teach, as well as specific course assignments. You can arrange time with your teachers before or after school.

Where can I find additional help?

National Honor Society students are available to help tutor students struggling in a class in a one-on-one setting. Many tutors are available to meet in the mornings or after school, whenever the student is able to meet. If you have students that might benefit from this tutoring they can sign up to be contacted by a tutor with this link: http://eastridgenhs.weebly.com/ 

What do I do when I come in for help?       

  • Use the time as structured work time
  • Work on assigned reading, assignments, and projects.
  • You will have a teacher there to ask . . .
    •     Is my work “on the right track”?
    •     Is my work of good quality? (Come with assignments complete if possible.)
    •     Can you help me understand this section of the reading?
    •     Can you clarify these directions for me?
    •     Can you help me understand the assignment expectations?

Time to study—with a teacher there to help if you need it

  • Do your “Note making” step of looking for key words to circle, highlighting main ideas, adding info, and identifying any points of confusion with a question mark.
  • Do your “Note interacting” step of creating high level question in the question column, quizzing yourself with those questions, and writing a good summary at the bottom.
  • You will have a teacher there to ask for help if you are not understanding something.
  • What are some areas of the class information you are not confident in yet? Can you bring this to tutorial?

Questions to ask of your teachers?

  • Would you be willing to look at the work I have done so far on this assignment?
  • Am I following the expectations well?
  • How can I improve the quality of this work?
  • What would you recommend I spend this time studying?
  • What are some higher level questions I could challenge myself with?
