We provide tutoring to help students master course material and study skills


Tutoring is intended to help students increase their understanding of course material, and improve their learning and study skills. Tutoring is available for most developmental and introductory courses as well as some upper-level courses. It is provided in individual or small group settings by qualified community or peer tutors.

Tutoring is intended as a supplement to classroom instruction, and is not a substitute replacement for regular attendance and participation in your classes.

Content Tutors (CT’s)
Subject matter experts who’ve taken your class and can help you with specific questions regarding concepts, projects, and help you study for exams. Great for when you’re feeling behind in a class and need a class wizard!

Student Success Tutors (SST’s)
Academic guides who can help with general student success at school. They help with time management, organizational strategies (backwards planning, note-taking, study habits, etc.), reading strategies, and much more! These folks help you when you might be feeling overwhelmed with school in general, and not sure where to start!
