Tutoring

When group study sessions just aren’t enough, work with one of our trained peer tutors. Individual or small group peer tutoring is available on either a long-term or short-term basis in most 100- and 200-level courses.

The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides free tutoring for groups of one to three students working with a peer tutor for the courses listed below. If your course is not listed and is a 100- or 200-level, please contact the ASC to discuss the possibility of tutoring assistance. Tutoring is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each year, more than 800 tutoring matches are made through the ASC peer tutoring service. Before seeking tutoring, we recommended that you talk with the professor of the course involved. When used appropriately, tutoring can make a significant difference in a student's overall course performance; however, it is not a replacement or substitute for communication with the professor. 

Need a Tutor?

Before being assigned a tutor, you must attend one tutoring information and expectations meeting each semester.

You are encouraged to attend a 20-minute group tutoring information session which will allow you to apply for and receive your tutor's information online. Attending the group session will allow you to receive tutoring information much sooner than an individual appointment (usually less than 24 hours from receipt of your application.)  

The group sessions are offered beginning on Monday, September 3 and will be held weekly at the following times:

  • Mondays/Wednesdays, 12 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. – VanZoeren 297
  • Tuesdays/Thursdays, 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. – VanZoeren 240

Alternatively, you may make an individual appointment at the ASC by submitting a paper application in person to the ASC office and scheduling the first available individual appointment at least two business days later. 

Tutoring applications for fall 2018 are accepted from Wednesday, September 5, to Friday, November 16.
