Learning Assistance Services & Centers

Our Goal

Our goal is to help students develop their learning skills to help them take a proactive approach to their courses, discover their particular learning style, and develop their critical thinking skills, through our learning assistance services (i.e.coaching, mentoring, tutoring, etc). We believe that each of these skills are necessary in each student becoming an independent learner. 

Remote Tutoring by Course - Summer 2020

For all non-Math (see Math Labs) and Non-English (see English Labs) courses, and students not needing help with speech presentations (see Speech Lab), or writing papers (see WAC Lab). For everything else, you found the right place.

***Remote Online Tutoring Rooms (using Zoom) found below, by course, to get tutoring assistance in a drop-in basis***

Make Tutoring Work for You

To help us make your sessions as productive as possible:

1. Come Prepared

Bring your textbook, notes, and assignment sheets with you. Read your assignments and do your best to work through your homework problems before your tutoring session.

2. Attend Classes Regularly

Tutoring is designed to supplement class instruction, not to replace it.

3. Do Not Ask Tutors to Do Your Homework, Proof-read Your Assignments, or Assist in Any Way with Take-home Exams or Quizzes

Tutors can help clarify assignments and identify skills needed to complete assignments. They can give you extra problems and examples like the ones you are having trouble with and help you learn to solve them.

4. Understand that Tutors are Not Professors

Teaching provides students with new information; tutoring helps the students master that information by providing alternate explanations, techniques, and examples. Tutors cannot be a substitute for attending class.

5. Use Tutoring Services Efficiently

You will benefit more from tutoring if you come when you first begin having problems. If you wait until the last minute, you may not be able to master the material in time to succeed on tests and assignments.

6. Do Not Expect Tutors to Know Everything

Please remember that tutors are often students like you who have mastered specific course content with a specific instructor. They are not expected to have the level of experience of your professor.

7. Ask Questions When Something is Unclear

If you remain silent, the tutor may assume you understand. Tutors have learned many ways to explain a single concept, so continue to ask questions until the material is clear to you.

8. Sign-in for Tutoring Services, Evaluate Staff, & Learning Assistance Centers When Requested

These are the only requirements for the free tutoring and all learning assistance services provided. Doing this helps us maintain funding to continue to provide these services at no charge.
