Free Tutoring is Available:
If you have a student at East Aurora High School, he/she may be eligible to receive free tutoring. Tutoring can be provided on-site. Students are assessed and then lessons are developed to meet each student’s individual needs. Instruction is available in the academic areas of reading, writing, vocabulary, comprehension, mathematics, study skills, and test taking strategies. This tutoring is in no way a place to work on homework assignments, but an opportunity for remediation or acceleration. If you would like further information, tutoring schedules, and how to take advantage of this opportunity, please either contact DiAna Helvie at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 630/299-8056 or 630/779-8071.
