For Faculty

Tutoring supports faculty with solutions tailored to your specific class:

Writing Workshop Series

Study Skills Series

Request a tutor visit to discuss what peer tutoring is, how it can help, and why students should take advantage of it. A tutor visit is a great way to help demystify tutoring for new or apprehensive students.

Refer your students for tutoring. Students are much more likely to take advantage of tutoring services when their instructors recommend it. We can also focus specifically on the challenges you want the student to address.

Request an Embedded Tutor to help facilitate small group exercises or discussions, work with individual students who require additional support, or provide guided review sessions in addition to out-of-class tutoring.

Request a class workshop. We can provide supplement presentations to your class on topics such as Note-Taking, How to Read Textbooks, How to Study, How to Proofread, and on both APA and MLA citation.

For more information, contact Kathy Bryson at nlc-lakeviewtutors@alamo.edu or (210) 580-6658.
