Peer to peer tutoring
ELKHORN, Neb. (KMTV) - Nearly a dozen of Elkhorn High School students gather almost every morning before school starts in a room.
Each one shares one thing in common.
Isabel, 15, is working on her Spanish vocabulary while senior Brynn helps another student with a science lesson.
Both are in a peer tutoring program created by the National Honors Society.
"It's just nice when you have someone your age be able to explain it in a different way, but it still makes sense and it's still correct," Brynn said.
The student-athlete knows first-hand what it's like to seek help outside of a classroom.
My freshmen year, I needed a tutor in Honors Geometry, she said.
Since then, she's volunteered to tutor others. One year, she helped Spanish learners. At the moment, she's tutoring chemistry.
For Isabel, a freshmen, she says her grade in Spanish improved after one semester.
"I think it's helpful [because] your teachers don't understand what's kind of stressing you out," said the 15-year-old.
But your peers do because they've been through it, Isabel said.
