Roseville High School debuted a Math and Science Tutoring Center in Admin 2, which is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30-4:30 p.m.

In contrast to the current Tiger Tutoring center, which student tutors primarily staff to aid with English and social sciences, math and science teachers will monitor the new center to help students in their respective subjects.

“By expanding and reorganizing, we hope to provide options that meet the needs of even more students,” RHS assistant principal Ann-Marie Clark said.

Math teacher Sandra Schmatjen, who heads after-school tutoring programs at RHS, will help run the Math and Science Center alongside math teachers Chaudra Wood and Lisa Vaccaro and science teacher Robert Mahlman.

Schmatjen wanted to improve tutoring opportunities for students that desire teacher rather than student instruction.

“If they feel more comfortable working with a student, they should go to Tiger Tutoring,” Schmatjen said. “If they feel more comfortable working with a teacher, then they can come in next door to the [Math and Science Center].”

Staff said they developed the center after hearing concerns from students about a lack of capable math tutors in Tiger Tutoring and inconsistent availability from their instructors.

“If there wasn’t someone there that could answer their questions, then they wouldn’t find value in Tiger Tutoring. So, we are hoping by having a place where they can come get teachers, we are really opening the options for them,” Schmatjen said.

Wood, a math teacher who will help staff the after-school center, hopes that students will find the consistent aid from teachers beneficial.

“Hopefully by ensuring that there will always be two math teachers qualified in all the subjects every Tuesday and Thursday, the students will start relying and trusting that help is there and can be counted on,” Wood said.
