Peer Tutoring supports student success through small group and one-on-one sessions with highly qualified student/peer tutors. Centrally located on the first floor of Conyngham, tutoring is offered in most 100 and 200-level courses. Appointments are made online or by visiting Mr. Alberto Prado, Academic Support Coordinator.
Peer Tutoring appointments can be make 24/7 online.
For some particularly challenging courses, students may participate in Supplemental Instruction (SI). SI is a nationally-recognized academic enrichment program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions designed to improve academic performance. Attendance is voluntary. SI sessions offer a chance to get together with people in the same class 2-3 times per week to compare notes, discuss important concepts, and to develop strategies for studying. Come to SI and test yourself before your professor does—so that when he/she does, you’ll be ready! SI session times will be announced in class.
The Learning Skills Program creates opportunities for students to identify and develop strategies to improve learning. Academic Success Workshops assist students to develop a number of essential skills for learning in college (see above). Students also work one-on-one with University College staff to create individual plans for success through academic counseling and coaching sessions. Sessions focus on identifying academic strengths and difficulties and building skills to achieve set goals. Contact Ms. Katy Betnar, Learning Specialist for details.
