IHS Students Bond with Peers Over Tutoring Program
Irvington High School juniors and seniors – who were inducted as members of the inaugural National Honor Society at the high school – are giving back to their school community as part of an after-school tutoring program.
Through the program, National Honor Society tutors – who were chosen as members of NHS for demonstrating outstanding qualities in academics, leadership, character and community service – are responsible for assisting and mentoring other students.
“NHS tutors are available to help with a quick homework question or anything from class where students might need some guidance,” Principal David Cohen said. “They have a wide variety of expertise and experience and can help in many subject matters, even some Advanced Placement classes. We encourage all students to take advantage of this service.”
Students said the most rewarding part of the program has been making connections with others and watching them learn in school.
“We are excited for the future and hope that this becomes a resource that our whole community is excited about,” said Diana Cassidy, advisor of the National Honor Society.
The drop-in program takes place in the library every day during ninth period and from 3:20 – 4 p.m.
