Professional Tutoring Staff

Professional Tutors help students discover their learning preferences and identify study behaviors.  Rather than provide answers and edit work, tutors use questioning techniques designed to help students develop critical thinking skills.  The goal is to empower students to independently and accurately take in, think about, organize, and demonstrate knowledge. 

Details about what we cover:

  • Writing: across the curriculum, including graduate level (except for foreign language)
  • Math: MAT 101, 102, 105, 111, 115, 121, 122, 135, 201, 224, 236, 237, and 272
  • Study Skills and Time Management: Personal assessment of learning preferences (VARK) and study behaviors (SBI) used to create a specific study plan based on results and student schedule
