When second semester at Troy Buchanan started on Jan. 3, many students began their A+ tutoring class.
The A+ class provides students with more opportunities to easily reach their required 50 tutoring hours.
“[This class gives me] the opportunity to work with some great kids and it has helped me get out of my shell,” junior Summer Sweeten said.
A+ requirements can be difficult to reach and maintain throughout high school, therefore it takes a hard-working student to exceed these expectations.
“I think the A+ is one of the best opportunities for young adults,” junior Ashley Shoemake said. “It’s nice to be able to do the program in high school to help give you a boost for paying for college in the future.”
All A+ students are required to work with other students within the school district. In this class students tutor others who need help with different subjects such as math, reading or even art.
“I help out students at the Ninth Grade Center with their math questions,” junior Zeke Jennings said.
“I think the students [that I help] really appreciate it.”
Students within the A+ class may benefit from taking the class, but many of the teachers that receive help are really appreciative for the assistance they receive from these students.
“I think it’s a great opportunity because it gives high schoolers the chance to help the younger generation,” Sweeten said.
