Tutoring (individual and group)
Tutoring is offered in a variety of subjects (including Math, English, Reading, and the Sciences), at no cost to students. They may work one-on-one with trained, knowledgeable tutors, or in groups with other students studying the same topics. Appointments are available at the front desk of the Tutoring Center.
Do you know of an excellent student that would make a great tutor? We are always looking for top-quality tutors in all subjects, and we know that instructors have the keenest sense of their students’ academic promise. Sending faculty recommendations of potential tutors to the Tutoring Center is an invaluable process. It’s an example of true interdependence, creating a “win-win-win” situation for all involved:
- Instructors are assured that students receive assistance relevant to their courses because the instructors become instrumental in creating the pool of tutors.
- Students get paid for their expertise, acquire work experience (with references), and a work schedule designed around their classes
- The Tutoring Center gets capable students who have already proven their ability in previous courses.
How you can help:
- Send us names of students (no need for ID numbers) who have successfully completed your course with a grade of A or B.
- Consider students who you think have shown a desire to help others.
- Discuss potential tutor recommendations with colleagues in your department if you need to get a better sense of your students.
