Office Hours are two regularly scheduled blocks of time (usually Tuesday/Friday), that precede the school day, known as office hours.
Some mistakenly think that academic tutoring is the only use of the office hours’ time when there are, actually, many other great uses of the time that students should consider. Look at the following suggested uses for the time set aside for office hours.
Student Engagement/Student Success
