  • Visit the school library after school!  PHS offers tutoring EVERY Monday and Thursday from 2-4pm and EVERY Wednesday from 2-3pm.  You can sit down with an English teacher to ask questions and get help with any of your English assignments.  You can even use this time to type up your latest essay or project for class.
