What is Tutorial Assistance?
Tutoring Services provides assistance in all levels of
math and in many subject areas. The program goal is to help students
become independent, self-confident, and efficient learners by providing the
assistance they need and helping them improve their chances to succeed in
their courses and attain personal and academic goals.
Who Needs Tutorial Assistance?
The program is open to all students who can benefit from the services
provided. These may include students who need special assistance to survive
a course, students who want to maximize their learning and get higher grades,
and students who need assistance because they do not have enough
confidence in themselves or in their ability to learn.
Who are the Tutors?
Peer Tutors (Click here to see who's tutoring this semester!)
Peer tutors are students who meet the minimum and desirable qualities
required of tutors. They have taken and excelled in courses they tutor
and are recommended by their instructors. These students enjoy
learning and maintain satisfactory academic progress. They are trained
prior to assuming their duties.
They are dedicated instructors who find time outside the classroom to
give the extra help students need in their own subject areas or in other
courses. They either volunteer a set time in The Learning Center or tutor
students in their offices.
How to Apply for Tutorial Assistance
Tutoring Services requires each student who needs tutorial assistance
to complete and submit a demographic information form. Students will need to
make appointments to meet with a tutor, although "walk-ins" are served
when tutors are available. The color-coded sign-up sheet, tutors' work
schedules, and tutor subject areas are posted on the board near Tutoring Services area
front desk. Students are expected to keep their appointments or call to
cancel their appointments when they cannot meet with tutors.
