What types of tutoring are available?
When a student has trouble in a specific 100- or 200-level course, s/he will be assigned to a peer tutor. Those assigned to peer tutors will meet once weekly for one hour per session. These tutoring sessions may be one-on-one or as part of a group.
If a student is concerned about study skills (time management, test taking skills, test anxiety, etc.) or reading, s/he will be assigned a professional tutor. Meetings with professional tutors are treated as a zero-credit class, which is called PROF 090. As long as the student is enrolled full-time, there will be no charge for professional tutoring.
Group PROF 090s called "Success Groups" are also available for students who want additional mentorship while developing the skills and attitudes to become successful in college and in life.
Students who need help brushing up on basic math skills will be assigned a professional tutor.
If a student wants help with a writing assignment (essay, research paper, report, etc), s/he can sign up for a one-time, half-hour appointment with a professional tutor in the Writing Center.
Students can sign up for longer-term writing tutoring appointments (two times a week for one-half hour for five weeks) with a professional tutor in the Writing Center. These are treated as zero-credit mini courses called COMP 090.
Professional writing tutors are also available to review students' College Writing Exams.
