After School Peer Tutoring General Info
The PVHS Media Center offers after school tutoring for all of our students. Tutoring assistance is given by fellow PVHS Wildcat students who are members of our AP program, CSF (California Scholarship Federation) or NHS (National Honor Society). There is also a supervising teacher available. Please open the file to view a run down of our program.
Tutoring is available every week, Monday through Thursday, except on minimum days. Should there be a change, we will do our best to inform students by way of PA system and/or notices posted on main media center doors.
