Tutoring Resources for WBMS Students
High School Students
At times, some of our West Branch High School Students are looking for ways to earn community service hours and/or extra money. This can be difficult to coordinate, as many of them have very busy schedules. However, if you are interested in this option, setting up tutoring with a high school student can be done in several ways:
- Contacting the family directly (if you know the family well)
- Contact the High School to see if they have a list of students interested in tutoring.
One of most useful tools for our students is an online tutoring site called Khan Academy. You will need a parent/guardian to help sign you up and to create an account. Once an account is created, the program will take you through the skills you need to work on. The program will adjust as you master the skills. There are also video lessons to help you. The website is: www.khanacademy.org

Your Local Church
Many of the churches in our school district have members (usually retired) who love to work with young people and are looking for something productive to do. You may want to consider contacting your local church office and ask if they have any members interested in tutoring your student.
