Free tutoring wins back weekends
Nicole Stormer believes high school students need to claim back their weekends.
She knows that the hard slog of studying to get good grades can be a time consuming process.
The Ngaire Avenue Bible Church youth worker is starting a free central Auckland after-school tutoring programme.
Bring Back the Weekend aims to partner voluntary university and high school students together to help students achieve their goals at school.
‘‘For a lot of kids studying is really important’’, Stormer says. ‘‘But it’s also important to have balance in life.
‘‘If you get your study done on Friday you can bring back your weekend.
‘‘We wanted to make a programme that fits with all kids but the heart behind it is to build those good relationships.’’
The Carey Baptist College student says she was inundated with eager university students keen to lend a hand.
‘‘There’s a real range of what they’re studying. We’ve got medicine, business engineering and teaching students so everything is covered. ‘‘
The programme will cater for up to 75 students every Friday from 3.30pm - 5.30pm at Ngaire Avenue Bible Church.
