Philosophically, Schreiber High School believes that the best way for students to obtain assistance with their school work is through seeing their teacher for extra help. To learn more about student extra help please visit the Extra Help section of the web site. Some students find they benefit from one on one work with a student tutor. The academic honor societies in each subject area discipline do provide connections to student tutors. The list of Honor Societies and their advisors is as follows: National Honor Society - Mr. Bryan Frank - 767-5942 Foreign Language Honor Society - Mrs. Carol Ferrante - 767-5946 English Honor Society - Mrs. Joan Lisecki - 767-5869 Math Honor Society - Dr. Jeffrey Lesser - 767-5951 Students should speak to their guidance counselors, or the advisors of the honor society in that area, in order to make a connection with a student tutor. Occasionally, parents may seek the assistance of a teacher to tutor their child. Please conatct your child's guidance counselor to discuss this if you feel it is needed. Please note that by policy our staff is not allowed to tutor their own students. Below is the text of BOE policy #4134 on "Private Tutoring by Port Washington UFSD Staff."
