Helping Waukegan students succeed
I am excited to work with the students in our Homework Help program every day. Our afterschool program was created to help students do well in school today and develop the tools they need to be successful in the future.
I love seeing how this program not only helps students but the whole family as well. When parents first come in, we see their concern and frustration for many reasons. Some don't have the time to help; others simply are not able to help because they do not know the material. One parent told us that she was concerned that her daughter was going to fall too far behind because it took her hours to do her homework every day. After coming to one Homework Help session, I realized that her daughter had been too distracted at home to pay attention, but was able to complete her homework assignments easily when she could concentrate in quiet.
Our Homework Help program is an extra hand for parents. We help students brainstorm answers, think aloud or even be creative. The tutors are Waukegan high school volunteers who are positive and ambitious and make students feel comfortable. Waukegan students are helping Waukegan students to succeed.
Is your child struggling? We can help.
Homework Help is open Mondays-Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Sundays from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
I hope to see you there!
