NHS - Peer Tutoring

NHS Peer Tutoring  is available to any student attending Mullen.  This program pairs students with members of the National Honor Society. A student can meet with an available tutor or schedule an appointment with a specific tutor.  Peer tutoring is recommended to help a student review for a quiz or test, edit papers, check and help with nightly homework, as well as learn general organizational skills.  Peer tutoring is most effective when each session has a very specific outcome.
