New Tutoring Program Sure To Be A Success
By: Jack Barksdale ’19
This year, as its semestral service project, Episcopal’s National Honor Society chapter has created a program that is sure to benefit all involved by taking on a more long-term project. The NHS Tutoring Program will coordinate tutors for many of Episcopal’s most rigorous courses. The catch? Tutors will be fellow Episcopal students who have demonstrated superior knowledge and/or experience in a given subject.
The students who sign up for tutoring are sure to benefit from this peer-aid, and the tutors will, as tutor Nathaniel King ‘19 wisely put, “ […] feel gratified knowing that [they are] helping out the community.” Another benefit for the NHS members are service hours, an added perk likely to attract many of Episcopal’s best and brightest to the tutoring program. The idea of mutual cooperation is what drove the NHS’s leadership team to create the program, and it is hard to argue that Episcopal, with its deep-rooted community dynamic, isn’t the perfect place to institute such a program. NHS member Henry Page ‘19 said, “I’m excited and incredibly impressed by both the creativity and ambitiousness of the project. With continued hard work from our school’s NHS members, I think the program will be a success.” It is easy to imagine Page’s prediction holding true, especially at a school like Episcopal, which is well-known for both its academic rigor and caring, intelligent students.
