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. 

Applications for tutoring assistance will be accepted beginning Wednesday, January 15, through Monday, April 6.

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 their 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. If you had a tutor during the fall semester you may apply as a “returning tutee” during the spring semester. Please note that 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 will be offered until March 27: 

  • Monday at 12:15 p.m. in VanZoeren 276
  • Tuesday/Thursday at 11:15 a.m. in VanZoeren 299

Tutoring applications for Spring 2020 are accepted January 15 through April 6. 

Spring 2020 courses tutored

If your course is not listed, please consult your professor, lab instructor or academic department for additional assistance. You may also complete a tutoring application and we will determine if a tutor can be recruited. Academic coaching and learning strategies assistance is also available through the ASC at no charge.
