Bullis endeavors to support private tutoring services for its students by providing meeting space in the Marriott Family Library to qualified tutors. Tutoring at Bullis is essentially a private arrangement between parent and tutor, facilitated and overseen by the School as necessary to contribute to student safety, campus security and access for all students to tutoring services, regardless of financial resources. Parents must sign a consent form and release agreement before the first on-campus tutoring session.
Tutors must be approved by the Upper School learning specialist before tutoring at Bullis. Bullis reserves the right to decline on-campus tutoring privileges to individuals based on lack of tutoring experience or subject area knowledge, or based on background information that creates a safety or security concern.
All meetings between tutors and students on the Bullis campus occur in the Marriott Family Library, which is available for tutoring sessions when one or more librarians are present. No tutoring occurs in the library before 8:00am or after 5:00pm. Tutors normally meet with students after school, or during the student’s study hall or extra instruction block. Other times, such as lunchtime, must be approved in advance by the learning specialist for your child’s division.
Tutors must register through the Upper School Learning Specialist to gain permission to work on campus. Tutors are required to pay a trimesterly fee for use of the tutoring facilities.
