Small Group Tutoring

What It Is

The tutoring program allows students to review the concepts their professors have covered in class. Tutoring sessions consist of small groups, usually kept under fifteen students, which meet once a week for two hours. An upper-class tutor, who has excelled in the course he or she is tutoring, reviews recent concepts and homework and answers any questions the students might have. The tutoring program is open to all first year students and sessions are offered for most first year courses.

Private (one-on-one) tutoring is also available on a limited basis for students who have participated in group tutoring but still require additional help. See your advisor for more details if you feel that you would benefit from extra individual assistance. 

Enrollment and Attendance Policy

Enrollment is required to attend tutoring sessions, although students may un-enroll at any point during the semester. While enrolled, participants are expected to attend all sessions; we believe that your consistent participation is beneficial both to you and to the other students in the program. If you are unable to attend a session, email the LRC at to obtain an excused absence. In order to maintain the balance and effectiveness of the group, three unexcused absences will result in dismissal, although you may re-enroll if space is available.
