The latter half of the session, focused on what we call Homework Support – where each of the HCOP health professional students have shared with HCOP staff subjects in which they are experts in i.e. Algebra, Physics, Chemistry, Spanish, Genetics, Statistics, etc. And from this gathered information, we implemented Homework Support where our HCOP high school and undergraduate students were able to receive help with homework/classroom assignments covering a wide range of subjects offered up by our most amazing HCOP health professional students. High school and undergraduate students were advised to come with ALL the homework/class assignments that they could possibly think of and to be sure to bring along textbooks, classroom notes, subject handouts as well as any questions they may have regarding homework. This was the perfect time to get questions answered and receive clarification on subject material that may have been racking their brains.
