Every Wednesday, 3:15 PM - 5:30 PM
Room: Fellowship Hall
Students -- Are you struggling with schoolwork or looking for study friends? Would you like free help with Science, Math, English, Foreign Languages, or Writing from experienced teacher/tutors? Or are you interested in a place to study/play games/hang out together with other students after school?
High school or middle school students of all types (public, private or home-schooled) are welcome to drop by Prairie Hill Evangelical Free Church on Wednesdays from 3:15-5:30 pm for free tutoring help on Science (physics, chemistry, physical science, general science), Math (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, or calculus), or Writing/English/Foreign Language (French, German, Russian, Swedish, and Lingala) by trained/experienced volunteers. Or come for a relatively quiet place to study, play games, or hang out with other students. Tutors are willing to help with homework problems you are struggling to understand, proof-read papers and give feedback, assist with ACT/SAT preparation, give advice on preparing resumes or scholarship applications, or even suggest chess strategy tips. A shelf of reference books (both academic and theological), games, snacks or drinks may also be available.
The following adults are regularly present:
- Mike Thorud is a licensed science teacher and former mechanical engineer with over 20 years of experience teaching/subbing/tutoring with Eden Prairie schools, Minnetonka schools, Chan/Chaska schools, The International School, Wayzata High School, CHAT, South Heights, and one-on-one private tutoring.
- Vickie Carlson knows six languages. She has taught French (her major) and German (her minor), English as a foreign language in Russia, and lived in Africa.
- Tyler Magnuson is our Prairie Hill youth group director, and knows English and ancient Greek.
We are located next door to Eden Prairie High School and will follow their school year schedule. No pre-registration needed; just drop in whenever the Free Tutoring sign is by the church parking lot entrance. Students are also welcome to stay past 5:30 for the mealtime and youth group activities planned that evening.
