Tutoring Center Services

Individual and Group Tutoring

Students may meet with a tutor for help with any one subject for up to two (2) hours per week, depending on tutor availability. Tutoring in multiple subjects is allowed; however, students may not schedule more than a maximum of five (5) hours of tutoring per week for all subjects combined. Students who want to meet with a tutor must complete all application forms and bring them, in person, to the Tutoring Center to schedule their appointments.

One-Time-Only Tutoring

Based on tutor availability, students can schedule appointments as needed to get the short-term assistance that they need. As with other individual and group tutoring, students who want to meet with a tutor on a one-time-only basis must complete all application forms and bring them, in person, to the Tutoring Center when scheduling their appointment.

Drop-In and Standby Tutoring

Drop-in tutoring hours vary by semester, and standby tutor availability changes daily. Students wishing to utilize this type of tutoring must check with the Tutoring Center for up-to-date details and must also complete all application forms before tutoring can take place.

ESL and Foreign Language Conversation Groups

Students enrolled in ESL and foreign language classes can benefit greatly from participating in conversation groups. The Tutoring Center can help to facilitate the formation of such groups, based on tutor and group room availability. As with all other Tutoring Center services, all application forms must be completed before joining a conversation group.
