"Do you need help studying for a class or an upcoming test? Maybe you want some extra help going over an assignment in class? Our tutors are students too, so they understand how it feels to be a student. They've taken the classes and studied for the exams. They’ve worked hard to become the best support system here, for you, so that you can be successful in your classes.
Our tutors can help in most of the general education courses and remember, all tutoring is free. Sign up, fill out the tutoring request form below, or give us a call today to get you started."
Yes, tutoring is free.
Most often we can provide tutoring in the 100 or 200 level general education classes. If you have a question about a specific subject, please email us at [email protected]
The appointments usually last up to 50 minutes; however, a student does not need to stay the entire appointment.
During each appointment, you’ll work with a tutor on content, study strategies, or general support. It’s your appointment so you guide each session.
Please bring all your material and anything that is related, so we can have a better understanding of how to help you in your class.
We work to cover the content of the exam or quiz instead of taking your test for you.
We can help you with your content, but we recommend always speaking with your instructor to catch up first. Then come see us.
Yes we can. Our tutors have experience with these skills too. One of our beliefs is to help you become a stronger student in the classroom.
Our tutors can help with study strategies, note taking, test anxiety, time management, to list a few examples of the other services we provide during your appointment. Always bring this up during an appointment with your tutor if you have questions.
If a student needs help with a writing assignment, he or she should visit the Writing Center, located in the Curtice-Mott Complex, CM 2031.
