Tutoring FAQ's

Q: Who are the ACE peer tutors?

A: ACE Tutors are current NDSU students who have earned high grades and professor recommendations in the classes they tutor. As a tutor, they must maintain high academic achievement throughout their employment and complete rigorous training to receive certification through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).  To provide students with additional support, ACE also has a partnership with the NDSU Mathematics Department who provides graduate student tutors for MATH 98-266.  If you would like to be a tutor, please visit our Employment Page

Q: How much does tutoring cost?

A: There are no additional costs associated with tutoring at ACE, so come often and stay as long as you want! To put this into perspective, private tutoring can range from $20-$40 per hour in the FM area.

Q: Who uses ACE Tutoring?

A: Because our focus is on introductory classes, we certainly see many first- and second-year students, but we work with juniors, seniors, and graduate students too. ACE has had up to 50,00 student visits each year, making it one of the most popular on-campus resources. Additionally, we know that students who visit ACE regularly have higher GPAs than students who don't utilize tutoring, so don't be afraid to stop in. Our tutors have experience in the courses you are taking right now and look forward to visiting with you.

Q: What else can ACE help me with?

A: While ACE is well known for our tutoring, we also have quiet study rooms for individuals or groups, a computer cluster with printer, and a peer mentoring program which offers individualized skill building for academic success - the Rising Scholars Program.
