METCO: Academic Support

date 10/21/2014

A Tutor has been hired to work with students in the METCO Academic Support Center beginning Tuesday, October 21st.

Mr. Neil Beers teaches Latin in our Foreign Language Department and he is currently a Ph.D candidate in Latin and Roman Studies.  He not only will provide support in most  languages, thesis work, papers & research,  but after reviewing the BHS math & science curriculum, some of which he has taught or tutored in the past, he will work with your children & their teachers to improve their knowledge of the subject and their grades.

This is a ten hour p/week position, for 29 weeks including final exams. 

Here is his schedule:  

  • Mondays: 11:30 - 1:30
  • Tuesdays: 11:45 - 1:05  
  • Wednesdays: 10:00 - 12:30
  • Thursdays: 10:00 - 11:45,   12:30 - 1:30, 2:00 - 2:25  
  • Fridays: 10:30 - 12

Students who rarely earn grades below a “B” always seek support to improve even more.  I am scanning Progress Reports to each of you acknowledging the hard work reflected on these and the work that needs to be done before the end of the first quarter, approximately 3 weeks away.  

New parents, report cards will be available before Thanksgiving.   Please contact us anytime.
