“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.”- Gloria SteinemWhether it be working to reach your dreams or organizing a science lab, success in school requires organization and planning. Listed below are some suggestions to help students develop and improve their study skills.The Learning Lab provides tutoring in a positive and supportive environment. Tutoring is available to all MUHS students for all subjects and classes. Tutoring can also be provided for organizational support, such as keeping a planner, prioritizing work and organizing notebooks. Students can be assigned to the Learning Lab if they want to come regularly, or they can come as needed during their free time or their guided study time. Tutoring is provided by two licensed teachers: Ben Krahn (English and History) and Tammie Beattie (Science and Math). Tutoring by peers, Middlebury College students and community volunteers can also be arranged.
The Learning Lab is open from 8:00-4:00 (except Fridays, when the Learning Lab closes at 3:00). At the end of each quarter, the Learning Lab also hosts Success Saturday. Students come in on a Saturday from 10-2 to do whatever work is necessary to improve their grades before the end of the quarter. Dates vary but Success Saturday is usually the Saturday before the end of any quarter.
The Learning Lab is located in room H-103. Stop by the Learning Lab if you are interested in tutoring or in being a tutor, or call 382-1165 if you have questions.
