Ronteweiénstha Tehontatia'takéhnhen is a Mohawk phrase that means "students helping students". This Homework Help program consists of mentoring and tutoring Indigenous students. The Homework Help program offers weekly one-to-one tutoring in a variety of subjects depending on the school, such as English, French, Math, History, Sciences and Social Studies. The tutoring is held after school for an hour and half once a week, and any McGill student is welcome to apply.
