Jaime Danen Directing Study Tables Monday-Thursday, 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Jaime Danen Directing Study Tables Monday-Thursday, 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Study tables started last week at NDA, providing a productive study time for students after school. They happen every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30.

Study tables are an opportunity for students to spend time in the library and get help on questions they have about schoolwork or be in a quiet space for studying.

“It is a welcoming environment, and we try to be supportive and helpful the entire time,” said Jaime Danen, who is in charge of directing the program this year.

It is Mrs. Danen’s first year running the program, but she is “very excited to help students out.”

She will be there everyday, along with different teachers and student tutors.

In order to be a tutor, you need to be an NHS member, as well as have a tutoring session with Mrs. Danen.

You then need to sign up through NHS and Mrs. Diane Mulroney (Doctora) to complete the process. 

“I really encourage people to be tutors because it is a great way to get to know people, practice speaking skills,and give back to our community,” said Mrs. Danen.

Even though the process to become a tutor is a bit long, people who simply want to study there are welcome to come whenever. 

Additionally, teachers might sign a student up and send some work for them to work on or complete.

The basic idea behind the program is how important it is for people who need a little help or motivation to show up.

Mrs. Danen thinks another good reason to attend is that “it’s really nice to do the homework right after school and not have to worry about it the rest of the night.”

Help is offered for every subject, every day. And even though it is still really early in the program to see major change, many students have been caught up already.

A final tip of advice from Mrs. Danen for students:  “Make a plan, don’t procrastinate, and DON’T BE AFRAID to ask for help!”
