For more information:
Anyone can benefit from tutoring! Tutoring can help maintain or improve a grade as well as make the difference between passing and failing a course. It can help students ease anxiety about difficult courses, deepen understanding and retention of course content, and help develop more effective study skills.
A tutor can help you gain new perspectives on your learning by asking questions, explaining concepts in different ways, sharing examples and resources, suggesting study strategies, providing encouragement, and more.
Tutors will not do the work for you, edit, correct, fix, or tell you what to write. They cannot provide feedback about grades, guarantee success in a class, tell you what will be on a test, or assist with take-home exams.
- Peer Tutors: Students who have completed the class with a B or better, or instructor recommendation.
- Tutoring Specialist: Graduates with an Associates Degree.
- Professional Tutor: People with a Bachelors or Masters Degree.
