Tutoring is offered by Dana Hills High students who are also members of the National Honor Society. There is no cost for their services.
NHS members must tutor a minimum of three hours per semester as part of their service to the DHHS community as well as maintain a minimum 3.75 weighted GPA each semester in order to remain "in good standing" with the National Honor Society. They must have exceptional character, leadership ability, and moral integrity.
Please contact your Counselor for a list of available student tutors.
Many teachers are available outside of class time and by appointment. Students must contact teachers as times and days may vary.
There are a number of private companies that offer tutoring services. Also, retired and current teachers offer tutoring and will advertise their services. A web search can help you find these private tutors.
