Office of Academic Success: Types of Tutoring

May & Summer 2022

Tutoring services are limited during the May and Summer semesters. To request an individual subject tutor, please complete the request form

Individual Tutoring

Individual tutoring, our most popular type of tutoring, provides one-on-one support for our students. Individual tutoring allows you and your tutor to develop a relationship over the course of a semester or year. In this setting, tutors often offer not only academic support, but also time management and study skills.

Small Group Tutoring

The process for small group tutoring is the same as individual tutoring. Tutors assist two or three students during a tutoring session. Small group tutoring is equally, if not sometimes better than, individual tutoring. Students benefit from thoughts and opinions of their peers in addition to the support of the tutor.

Drop-In Centers

Our drop-in centers are perfect for busy students who do not need weekly support or students who are looking for additional support on top of their individual tutoring. Math and Science drop-in centers are available during the Fall and Spring semesters. Other centers are added as needed. The drop-in centers are closed during the May and summer semesters.
