GOVS Tutoring

Last Updated: 4/11/2022 2:06 PM

GOVS offers two types of tutoring for all our students:

  1. Face-to-face tutoring
  2. Virtual tutoring (over Google Meet - similar to Skype)

At this point of the school year, most of our tutors are completely booked with students, trying to help them finish up their courses.  However - we do have a few tutors with some newly-found availability.  While we cannot guarantee a tutor will be able to help your student (due to availability), if the below options do not work, you can submit a tutoring request form.  Mr. Merk will do his best to find a tutor with availability.

Here is the link for the tutoring request form:

Remember that submitting an official tutoring request DOES NOT guarantee we will have someone to work with your student.


The below options are ALWAYS available for our students:

Drop-In Tutoring Lab

GOVS has drop-in Tutoring Labs at our new Student Center in Mason!

Drop-in means you do not have to register to attend - nor do you have to sign-up - all you have to do is come with your computer and be ready to get help from some amazing tutors!

We have Tutoring Labs every day of the week - mornings, afternoons, and even an evening:

  • MONDAYS from 10:00am-12:00pm
  • TUESDAYS from 1:00pm-3:00pm
  • WEDNESDAYS from 6:00pm-8:00pm
  • THURSDAYS from 1:00pm-3:00pm
  • FRIDAYS from 10:00am-12:00pm

All Drop-In Tutoring Labs are in-person at the GOVS Student Center in Mason.

Located in Wing B-3 of Western Row Elementary School, 755 Western Row Rd., Mason, OH  45040.  Once you get to the school complex, follow the green GOVS signs - we are in the back-left corner of the building.

Virtual Tutoring Labs

The Jefferson County ESC (which owns and operates VLA)  has developed a virtual tutoring lab schedule.

They have actual VLA teachers available to meet with students virtually throughout the day.  Note: this is only available Mondays through Thursdays.

Here is their virtual lab schedule:








You do not need to make an appointment - just make sure you are signed-into your GOVS Chromebook, click on one of these links, and you will be taken to the room.

Pick a time that is convenient for you and 'click' on the link!

If nobody admits you within 3-4 minutes, try the same link again; sometimes we don't hear the "doorbell".
