volunteers are also needed to be Tutors for PHS students, typically in accounting, algebra, algebra with trigonometry, biology, calculus, chemistry, English, environmental science, general math, geometry, history, physics, pre-calculus, Spanish, and trigonometry. Volunteers meet with a student for an hour between 5 and 9 p.m. to assist them with their studies. Tutoring sessions are held at the Parkersburg-Wood County Library on Monday-Thursday evenings.  Tables located downstairs in the center of the room can be used for the sessions.
