This year, the National and Spanish Honor Societies added tutoring obligations to their overall requirements for membership. Members of the National Honor Society are required to complete eight tutoring hours per semester and for Spanish, members must log two hours. The main problem lies in the opportunities to tutor. While both societies offer sparse days of tutoring in teachers room or one-on-one tutees available occasionally through Remind, these methods are disorganized and untimely. This is the main reasons why completing the requirements for these societies becomes so stressful.
The Math Honor Society, on the other hand, provides an intuitive way to sign up for the two required tutoring hours. Through SignUpGenius and physical calendars, the Math Honor Society has streamlined the way one signs up for tutoring for years now. Students don’t have to worry about whether there will be tutoring opportunities available, as there are always dates available for tutoring that members can see, access, and sign up for easily. This system must be adopted by other honor societies if they wish to continue requiring hours for tutoring. Organizing when you tutor shouldn’t be the stressful part of the tutoring process, and the systems developed by the Math Honor Society can eliminate that burden.
