Better Late Than Never

Hi everyone!

We're back with a new year here at Amity High School!

First, a reminder of why we are here. We are here to help with writing in ANY SUBJECT AREA. This means your science labs, your history research, your English essays, College Application Essays, creative writing, any writing at all.

Because we use student tutors, you can get feedback from people familiar with a variety of the subjects offered here at Amity and what the requirements are for that particular type of writing.

Tutors are now working and available in the Writing Center, though the schedule is a bit crazy!

Period 1: Only on B days, Abby

Period 2: No students on duty until semester 2

Period 3: Daisy (A/B days)

Period 4: Neha, Abby, and Sophia (But only A and D days!)

Period 5: Katie (But only on A days!)

Period 6: Sydney on A days and Kate/Maddie on D days

Period 7: Mary (all days!)

Period 8: No students on duty

NOW REMEMBER: IF THERE IS NOT A STUDENT TUTOR AVAILABLE, YOU CAN STILL MEET WITH THE TEACHER ON DUTY! THEY CAN ALSO BE VERY HELPFUL!


Our After School schedule is still being ironed out, but right now we have the following dates finalized:

Tues 10/23: Tracy
Wed. 10/24: Neha
Tues. 10/30: Sydney
Wed. 10/31: Katie
Tues. 11/6: No school, Teacher PD
Wed. 11/7: Mayel
Tues. 11/13: Jack


We hope you are having a great start to your year and are here to support you in your endeavors! Welcome back to Amity for 2018-2019!
