Who are our tutors?
Our peer tutors are successful students who have earned at least a A- in the courses they tutor, have been recommended by their professors, and have been trained in effective tutoring techniques through our intensive, CRLA Level 1 and 2 certified tutor training program. Their goal is to help students review course content through the use of interactive learning strategies and to help students learn study strategies that will aid in their success in their future classes as well.
When and where is tutoring scheduled?
Most of our tutoring is appointment-based and will fill up quickly, so it is best to go to TutorTrac, our online tutoring appointment software, to view available times, book your appointment(s), and reserve your spot in advance. Non-science tutoring sessions are held in the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) in General Classroom South (GS) on the 2nd floor.

- Prepare questions
- Bring the materials that you may need to the session which may include your syllabus, textbook, notes, study guides, a writing utensil and/or a laptop/tablet
