Tutoring

TUTORING AT TL

Tutoring is available for students in the school library throughout the week. Available times are the tutorial periods on Wednesday and Friday mornings; 1st, 6th and 7th periods, after school each day; and occasionally during lunch. We also offer tutoring once a week for all AVID students in their class sections (9-12).

The library's tutors are volunteers and the service is free; but our tutoring is not part of a mandated program, and shares the limitations of all volunteer programs. Priority is given to students struggling in a particular math, science, or language class. Available slots fill up early in the school year, so early sign-up is encouraged. 

Because of high demand, students are customarily limited to one hour of tutoring per week.  

To set up an appointment, contact Mr. John Gilluly, our librarian. He can be emailed at jgilluly@srcs.org.  Students can also check with their counselor, or come directly to the library.

Our tutors are experts in their fields. Adult tutors are former HS teachers, college professors, engineers, PhDs; and all have been carefully pre-screened by the Marin County School Volunteers (MCSV). We also have peer tutors from TL who excel at math and science. 

Students who use our services must understand the importance of keeping their appointments, and notify tutors in advance if there is a cancellation. If there are two no-shows (without notice) in a semester, a student will be dropped.

We encourage students to take advantage of this popular program and look forward to meeting you.
