COURSE TUTORING AND GROUP HELP SESSIONS

The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides course tutoring and a variety of group study sessions. All ASC programs and services are free of charge.

COURSE TUTORING

The ASC provides individual or small group peer tutoring in most 100- and 200-level courses, as well as select 300- and 400-level courses, on either a long-term or short-term basis. Click here for a general list of courses tutored this semester.

To request a tutor, a student should complete an Application for Tutoring Assistance and return it to the ASC. Students should allow a minimum of two business days for their application to be processed. Once a tutor is assigned, the tutor and student meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to:

Examine Student Learning Strategies
Review Information from Class
Discuss Content of Reading Assignments
Work Through Examples of Homework Problems

Tutors are generally upper-class students with outstanding academic records and faculty recommendations. They are trained in tutoring techniques and work with continuous supervision by the professional staff.
