Tutoring Center

The Tutoring Center assists students in becoming independent and successful learners. Each semester, faculty recommend students who have successfully completed their courses to act as Peer Tutors for individual tutoring and study groups.

Our tutors:

  • review assignments
  • help students plan long and short-term goals
  • assist students in becoming independent learners
  • help students develop methods and strategies to solving problems rather than simply giving answers to questions
  • assist with study strategy and time management

If you are new to the Tutoring Center, you can register and schedule an appointment. Students are allowed 2 hours of tutoring per week
