What kind of tutoring do you offer?
Subject tutoring is available to students in all subject areas. Subject tutors are meant to help you with course material, answer questions, and give guidance on assignments. Subject tutors can also help you develop learning skills specifically related to the type of course you are taking.
Trained writing tutors are available for one-to-one instruction on each step of the writing process. Here are a few examples of the ways a writing tutor might help you: understanding the assignment, organizing ideas, outlining and drafting papers, doing revision, answering grammar questions, and explaining how to do documentation and formatting. Writing tutors help you learn how to recognize problems particular to you and how to fix them.
Learning Skills Tutoring
Do you need help upgrading a learning skill? A learning skills tutor can help you develop skills in a particular area, such as time management, semester planning, studying, test-taking, reading, note-taking, procrastination, motivation, learning styles, and coping with stress. If you are struggling academically, but you’re not sure why, they can help you determine problem areas and develop strategies to help.
