Engineering tutors will be available for in-person sessions at the Center in Thomas Hall Room 3.11.
Tutoring is designed to support students with their courses by providing them with content-specific assistance. Our tutors receive ongoing training according to the College Reading and Learning Association standards in order to achieve international certification. By certifying our tutors, we ensure that all peer tutors are kept current regarding tutoring best practices.
Students can schedule to meet virtually with a tutor anywhere they have an Internet connection. Students who want to make an online appointment need a laptop or tablet with a microphone and camera. When scheduling an online appointment make sure to select 'Online via GoBoard' as the appointment's location (please refer to video below on how to access your online appoinment). All online sessions are by appointment only.
We offer one-on-one peer tutoring in most 100-200 level courses and select 300+ level courses across disciplines. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome. Students should look in their Courses channel in Jasper Connect to find tutors for their courses and schedule appointments. For guidance on how to use the system, view the quick video below.
All tutorial sessions are individual one-on-one tutorials.
Students who show up for a scheduled appointment 15 minutes late for more or a one-hour session, and 10 or more minutes late for a thirty-minute session will be marked as a no-show and lose their appointment if someone else is waiting.
Students are ONLY allowed to meet with one individual tutor once per week (regardless of the course) for up to one hour per week. Beyond the one hour per week with the tutor, students can see that tutor again as a walk-in in that same week. Multiple appointments in the same week for the same course are allowed with different tutors. Appointments that break this policy will be canceled but not counted against a students total canceled appointments.
Students are allowed a maximum number of three (3) appointments per center per week.
Students should come prepared with necessary materials such as notes, computer, textbooks, etc. for their tutoring session.
NO tutoring sessions are allowed to be held outside of regular hours of the CAS.
