Secondary Tutoring

The tutors at SJVA help create an environment that supports all students at their varying stages of academic growth and achievement. Our tutors are great at connecting with students and adapting to their learning styles. The intervention coordinators help facilitate relationships between tutors, teachers and students to ensure that their assistance is most effective.
Check out the most recent tutor schedule below. If you are interested in meeting with a tutor, please email them to request a Zoom invitation.

Christine Witt




My name is Christine Witt, and I am the Odyssey/Extended Enrichment Coordinator. Odyssey is a credit recovery program that is A-G compliant. We use this program to help students make up deficient grades. Extended Enrichment is an after school program where students can go to get extra help from tutors. These are just two of the many programs that SJVA offers to support our students. SJVA Cares!
