The tutors are undergraduate students who are trained and directed by full-time professional staff. They can help you in a variety of subjects including science, mathematics, history, philosophy, psychology, Spanish, sociology, theology, and study skills. All of the tutors attend training meetings to help them learn the best ways to help you.
Our tutors can provide assistance for a wide range of math and science courses. Math and science tutors have excelled in the courses and can help review the mathematics skills needed in courses such as chemistry, marketing and economics.
You may also attend the weekly Science or Math Success Sessions for help from the Math Instructional Specialists.
Peer Tutors can help you in acquiring foreign language skills. In addition, the professional staff can help you to acquire better memory and vocabulary acquisition skills.
Besides our tutoring services, the professional staff can help you to learn how to: read a college textbook efficiently; prepare for and take tests; take better notes; or manage your time. These services are available through a series of workshops (see the events page) or through individual conferences.
The Director of Disability Support facilitates all accommodations for students with disabilities. If you have a physical, cognitive or emotional disability, you should bring documentation of your disability to the Director of Disability Support. Upon receipt of your documentation, she will work with you to formulate an individual learning plan that will enable you to fulfill your academic potential. Click here for more information on support services for students with disabilities.
Documentation of your disability must be on file with the Director before accommodations can be made. Documentation guidelines for students and health professionals are provided. Ideally, requests for accommodations should be made before the semester starts or as soon as possible thereafter.
The majority of tutoring sessions are held on a walk-in basis. However, you may be required to schedule an appointment during periods when the demand is high or if you would like to meet with a certain tutor. Fill out the “Academic Tutoring Request Form” to make an appointment. Tutoring sessions usually last half an hour or an hour. Regular weekly appointments can be arranged by mutual agreement between the tutor and the tutee.
Help is available Monday -Friday.
The Academic Services Center is located on the first floor of the library.
