Is your son/daughter struggling in one or more of their classes? Here are some options:
Contact the teacher. Teachers offer help to students
either before school, during lunch, or after school. Your student can
utilize their teacher for extra help! The teacher is always the best
resource for helping your child improve their study habits and grades
for their class. Contact teachers by email or voicemail. Voicemail
can be left for a teacher by calling 891-3050 ext 0. An email
directory is available on the PV website at www.pvchico.org.
Private Tutors. Private tutoring is available through a number of resources including:
Community Action Volunteer in Education (898-5817)

There is also a list of private tutors in various subjects available
through the Counseling office. Please contact your student's teacher or
counselor for specific information about tutoring options.
Visit the Counseling Office if you'd like more information on becoming a Peer Tutor or getting peer tutoring services.
Tutors receive training on effective ways to work with their tutees, with an emphasis on confidentiality, providing positive reinforcement, and allowing adequate response time when asking questions. The training process also instructs tutors on explaining directions, watching for and correcting mistakes, and providing positive feedback and encouragement.
