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?

Instead of individual visits, come to a required half-hour tutoring information session before applying for a tutor and receive a tutor sooner without an additional visit to the ASC.

Attend one of the following sessions held in VanZoeren 240:

  • Thursday, January 11, 11 a.m. 
  • Friday, January 12, 4 p.m.
  • Monday, January 15, 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, January 16, 11 a.m.
  • Thursday, January 18, 5 p.m.
  • Friday, January 19, 3 p.m.
  • Tuesday, January 23, 11 a.m.
  • Thursday, January 25, 4:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, January 30, 11 a.m.
  • Thursday, February 1, 4:30 p.m.

After attending a session, you can apply for a tutor online. You do not need to schedule an additional appointment at the ASC. However, individual appointments can still be made by stopping by the Academic Success Center.

Tutoring applications for spring 2018 are accepted from Wednesday, January 17, to Friday, April 13.
