Individual tutoring provides peer-assisted individual focus time for a student to grasp the subject material in a way that is most beneficial to them. Trained peer tutors provide additional explanation of difficult concepts and idea from course material, assist students with preparing for class assessments, develop student stills, time-management, organization, etc., in an informal low stress environment where student feels supported and encouraged.
How it works:
- Students are able to schedule a 30-minute appointment.
- You can request a single session of tutoring at a time, for a specific introductory Core Curriculum course.
- You can make multiple requests throughout the semester or year for individual tutoring, based on your own need—it is always free.
- Remember that your tutor is also a student, so be ready to be somewhat flexible with scheduling.
