    Peer Tutoring Article

    Draft 1
    ----

    Peer Tutoring
    Anyone need help in a subject for school? Anyone struggling to get good grades in your Science or Math classes? You should go to the library and get help from some of your peers.
    This year, peer tutoring is going to start on September 28th 2009 and will be available to you on Mondays through Thursdays in the AHS library starting at 3 p.m. and ending at 4 p.m. When asking Mr. Wang, the advisor of peer tutoring, what subjects will be tutored this year, he said “Any and all subjects. We have tutors for all levels of math and science, and are working on getting a wider range of tutors that can tutor in world languages.” He also said that “peer tutors are there to assist in all subjects and if they themselves cannot tutor in a specific subject or level, they can find someone who can.”
    If any of you were wondering if there is going to be enough tutors and space for everyone to get help, have no worries! Mr. Wang assured me that there is plenty of space in the library for students to come whenever they want and get a tutor to help them in what they need. There is no schedule that you have to stick to but, if you want a specific tutor, you can look up their schedule and make arrangements with them to go when they are available. You can look their schedule up by “(quote on how to do that from Mr. Wang is to come soon).”
    Just in case one might be having second thoughts about getting tutored by one of your peers, Peer Tutors have to go through a process in which they make sure that they are tutoring material in the subject they wish to tutor on. They also get trained on how to tutor “at an above- satisfactory level.”
    If you would like to become a peer tutor, you “must fill out an application form stating information including (but not limited to) past classes and grades, subjects they wish to tutor, and days they will be available for tutoring. They must attend a mandatory informational meeting that describes the important aspects of the program. The last step would be to attend a training session which teaches the prospective tutors the "art of tutoring" - there's even a diploma for everyone at the end of the training session,” said Shadman Chowdhury, President of Peer Tutoring at AHS.
    Although the deadlines and mandatory meeting/training to become a peer tutor were either last week of two weeks ago, you can always try (asked them when they can try again, no answer yet).

    Peer Tutoring
    Anyone ["Do you" might sound better than "Anyone" here] need help in a subject for school? Anyone [and here] struggling to get good grades in your Science or Math [don't capitalize science and math] classes? You should go to the library and get help from some of your peers.
    This year, peer tutoring is going to start on September 28th 2009 [Sept. 28] and will be available to you on Mondays through Thursdays [...you Monday through Thursday] in the AHS library starting at 3 p.m. and ending at 4 p.m. When asking Mr. Wang, the advisor of peer tutoring, what subjects will be tutored this year, he said [When asked about which subjects would be taught, peer tutoring advisor Mr. Wang said,] “Any and all subjects. We have tutors for all levels of math and science, and are working on getting a wider range of tutors that can tutor in world languages.” He also said that “peer tutors are there to assist in all subjects and if they themselves cannot tutor in a specific subject or level, they can find someone who can.”
    If any of you were [are] wondering if there is going to be [will be] enough tutors and space for everyone to get help, have no worries! Mr. Wang assured me that there is [will be] plenty of space in the library for students to come whenever they want [at any time] and get a tutor to help them in what they need [plenty of tutors]. There is no schedule that you have to stick to but, [move comma before "but" (and the space before "but") and remove the comma following "but"] if you want a specific tutor, you can look up their schedule and make arrangements with them to go when they are available. You can look their schedule up by “(quote on how to do that from Mr. Wang is to come soon).”
    Just in case one might be having second thoughts about getting tutored by one of your peers, Peer Tutors have to go through a process in which they make sure that they are tutoring material in the subject they wish to tutor on [Don't address the reader as "you" and then suddenly switch to "one." Also, this sentence is very hard to understand. Are you saying the student looking for tutoring might have "second thoughts" or that the peer tutor might? Please rewrite this sentence] They also get trained on how to tutor “at an above- satisfactory level.”
    If you would like to become a peer tutor, you “must fill out an application form stating information including (but not limited to) past classes and grades, subjects they wish to tutor, and days they will be available for tutoring.

[Fix the quotation marks all throughout these couple sentences starting from "you 'must fill out...'" I can't really understand where the quotes begin and end. If you have a quote within a quote use single quotation marks rather than double quotation marks.]

    [Please note that in the future, quoting things like instructions on how to do something (as you did when explaining how to become a peer tutor) may not be the best choice. Instead, try asking the advisor or the president of whatever program you're working with questions that you can't find on the bulletin or the AHS website. For example, you could have asked how they feel that students have grown within the peer tutoring program or how they feel students generally respond to the methods that they use in their teaching. These opinions from people who work closely with the peer tutors would greatly benefit your article.]
