How can you access academic help?

There are several resources available on the YHS School Counseling Website for you to access:

Specifically, a few of those resources are:

  • YHS teachers are usually available from 7:30-8:20am.  You need to email or talk with your teacher ahead of time (the day before or sooner) to make sure they do not have a conflict.

  • ELC classes: Talk to your ELC teacher--he/she may be able to help you and/or find a peer tutor in your ELC to help you.

  • Ask Rose”: This is a FREE homework help program that you call, email, or chat on-line with a tutor who is trained to help you with all subject areas. The tutor will review your problem with you and help you work through the problem until you understand how to solve it yourself.
