    II. 4 Pillars

    The Four Pillars of the National Honor Society include the following values. Character, the force within an individual which distinguishes that person for others. Service, the willingness to work without monetary compensation or recognition. Leadership, the willingness to yield to one’s personal interest for the interest of others. Scholarship, a commitment to learning.

    III. National Honor Society Tutoring

    The following link is the official NHS internal tutoring request form. Students can fill out the form to request peer tutoring if they need help in any of their classes for the 2023-24 School Year. 

    Teachers are welcome to fill out the form or have their student fill out the form. Completing this form with as many details as possible will allow us to match the student with a tutor (an AMHS NHS junior or senior) who has similar interests and who we believe will be able to help the student find success and understand class material. We would appreciate you sending this out to your students or putting the link on your class Canvas or Google Classroom pages. 

    The *NEW* NHS Tutoring Help Desk: The NHS Tutoring Help Desk will be outside Ms. Renes’s room everyday during lunch starting in the fall. The help desk is a physical place where students can go to sign up for tutoring with a member of NHS without having to fill out the Request Form.


    The most important thing to remember when signing up for tutoring is that the National Honor Society Tutoring Committee is completely student-led and student-run. This means that scheduling and availability is entirely up to the committee members. We do our absolute best to make the perfect match for your student as the request comes in, taking into consideration the student's needs and preferences. However, we can not guarantee that all preferences are filled. It is important to understand that because this committee runs on a volunteer basis, hours and the ability to commit to regular tutoring are restricted. 

    Please allow 3 to 5 days for AMHS NHS to respond to your tutoring request. We will try to make a pairing as quickly as possible, but submitting a request in advance gives us ample time to fulfill the request properly. For example, if you have a test on a Thursday, notify us by Monday or sooner that you would like to schedule a tutoring session. If you have a test on Monday, notify us by Wednesday of the previous week or sooner. Please go to the NEW NHS Tutoring Help Desk at lunch for assistance with last-minute arrangements.
