The Center for Academic Success offers several different types of tutoring and academic assistance.
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.
We offer peer and small group tutoring in all 100-200 level courses and select 300 level courses across disciplines.
Appointments are perferred but walk-ins are welcome. You can schedule both HERE.
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.
Tutoring offerings for Summer Session I & II are limited in comparison to the regular academic year, but students, faculty, and staff are welcome to request tutoring for subjects where they anticipate students needing support.
Requestsmustbe submitted by the last day of classes each spring semester.
The CAS will try to fulfill any requests submitted before the deadline. Approvals are subject to budgetary and personnel limitations and restrictions.
A representative from the Center will reach out to any requests during finals week of the spring semester.
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.
