Every year competent, experienced students are trained and equipped to serve their fellow students as tutors in a wide variety of subjects. Tutorials may take one of three formats: individual sessions, small group tutorials of two to four students, or large group study sessions. Students can request individual assistance in study skills and time management.
Students simply complete an application to be paired with a peer tutor, then the student makes an appointment to meet with the tutor. It’s that easy! For each course a student is enrolled in, the student may receive two hours of tutoring per week.
Students desiring tutorial assistance can make an appointment by calling or by stopping at the desk during regular hours. Most students using tutoring services choose on their own to seek assistance. Some may also be referred by their instructor, advisor, or other college personnel.
