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. 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?

If you had a tutor during the fall 2018 semester, you may apply for a tutor through the Returning Tutee Request for Tutoring Assistance form. You do not have to attend another information session! Once we confirm that you attended a Fall 2018 information meeting and that you adhered to tutoring policies, you will receive a link to apply for a tutor online. Remember two help session visits are required for ACCT 221/222 and any MATH course (including Statistics).

If you did not have a tutor during the fall 2018 semester, you must attend a tutoring information and expectations meeting. There are two options:

  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 sessions are offered beginning Monday, January 7 and will be held weekly in VanZoeren 299 at the following times:
    • Mondays/Wednesdays, 12 p.m. and 12:30 p.m.
    • Tuesdays/Thursdays, 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

Tutoring applications for Spring 2019 are accepted Wednesday, January 16–Friday, April 12.
