Student Tutors

York Tutoring Center

The York Tutoring Center provides a dedicated space for students needing help with homework, learning new skills, of reinforcing concepts already learned. Students are paired with a Peer Tutor based on the student's individual needs.


Our Mission

York High School is committed to creating a culture of critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration in our school.  The Tutor Center facilitates this goal through small group work and one-on-one tutoring.  We believe all students can achieve, yet understand that learning styles vary.  The York Tutor Center provides the flexibility to meet the needs of all learners. 


  • We believe skills across content areas are connected
  • We believe all students are people with valid ideas who have something to say
