Tutoring

The Achievement & Advising Center supports student learning by strengthening a wide variety of educational skills. Working with a tutor can help you make the most of your study time while at the same time providing an enhanced understanding of potentially difficult subject matter. Tutoring is therefore an activity in which students are learning to better help themselves, both for courses in which they are currently enrolled and for their future academic endeavors.

Our faculty and faculty-recommended tutors help students develop study skills and personal success habits that enhance learning and encourage the highest level of scholarship and academic achievement.

All tutoring takes place in the Achievement Center Tutoring Suite located on the ground floor of the Office Building.  Bring your books, your notes, and your questions.
