Tutoring is offered in an individual setting. Tutors are trained to promote good study habits as well as assisting you with your academic needs. The tutor will do their best to explain the material that you have questions on, but the more prepared you are to ask questions the better the tutor will be able to help you. Students are expected to come prepared for tutoring by bringing your syllabus, course materials, textbook and questions.

Fall & Spring Tutoring hours are:
Mondays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays: 9:00 a.m.- 7:00 p.m.
Tuesdays & Fridays: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
