The mission of the tutoring program is to promote independence in learning. The tutoring program provides faculty-recommended tutors who are trained and supervised to assist students.

Walk-In Tutoring: Students who would like assistance with class assignments, projects, reports, etc., may attend one of the regularly scheduled subject matter tutoring sessions offered on a walk-in basis. All these sessions are held in Haymond Hall. Walk-In Tutors maintain at least a B average and are recommended by the faculty of the department for which they tutor. The tutors offer consistent, reliable, and personalized help in 100 and 200 level courses of the listed department.

The Business Walk-In Tutor, for example, offers help in such classes as Principles of Financial Accounting, Principles of Managerial Accounting, Principles of Management, and Principles of Marketing. The Psychology Walk-In Tutor can help students in classes such as General Psychology, Behavior Modification, Developmental Psychology, and Introductory Statistics for the Social Sciences.

Current Walk-In Tutoring sessions are posted in the residence halls, on the tutor bulletin board located on the top floor in Haymond Hall, in the academic buildings, and on the Learning Center’s web page. Any changes in the tutoring schedule will be posted on the tutor bulletin board located on the top floor of Haymond and outside the assigned tutoring room.

Study Groups: Peer-led study groups may be organized for classes in the event the class is not covered by the Walk-In Tutoring Program. The professor teaching the class recommends the study group leader. Study group times and locations will be announced in the class.
