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. Tutoring is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tutors will provide students with a minimum of one hour of assistance weekly. Additionally, up to three hours per week are permitted if the tutor is able to accommodate these in her schedule. 

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?

One tutoring information and expectations meeting is required each year before a tutor(s) can be assigned.  Also two help session visits are required for ACCT 221/222 and any MATH course (including Statistics) before a tutor will be provided. Two options are available to receive tutoring information and expectations:

  1. Complete an application to request a tutor and bring it to the ASC to make an individual appointment (the appointment will be scheduled two business days later).

    OR

  2. Attend a 20-minute group tutoring information session which will allow you to apply for and receive your tutor's information online. Attending a group session will allow you to receive tutoring information much sooner than an individual appointment (usually less than one business day from receipt of your application). 

Group tutoring information sessions are offered starting Monday, September 2: 

  • Monday/Wednesday at 12:00 & 12:30 p.m. in VanZoeren 298
  • Tuesday/Thursday at 11:00 & 11:30 a.m. in Bultman Student Center 004 

Tutoring applications for Fall 2019 are accepted September 4 through November 18.
