The Center for Academic Success offers several different types of tutoring and academic assistance.
We provide one-on-one or small group peer tutoring in a wide range of subjects including most core courses and selected upper-level courses. 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 have one-on-one or small group sessions with a certified tutor who can assist them with a specific topic or course. Students can call to make an appointment, or just walk-in.
Staffed by trained peer tutors, online writing tutoring provides students access to Manhattan College’s Writing Center support services from anywhere for students who can't make it to an in-person appointment. This service is facilitated via Google applications including Google Docs, Hangout and Chat. Appointments are required for online writing tutoring and must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
For traditionally difficult undergraduate courses, such as chemistry, physics and mathematics, we offer a supplemental instruction program where you can get additional instruction in selected courses. An upperclassman who received an A in that course attends the classes and then runs weekly study sessions for anyone in the course who wants to attend. As a study session participant, you'll review that week's lesson, and get help with homework problems, test preparation and study skills techniques.
Professors will announce in class if the course participates in supplemental instruction.
