Tutoring & Learning Skills

CONTENT TUTORING

Content tutoring is for students who are having trouble understanding basic concepts, ideas, or mechanical processes. Assistance is offered in most lower division subjects and in selected upper division subjects.

Most sessions consist of one-to-one instruction or small group instruction. Tutors are undergraduates who have been referred by their respective departments. These tutors participate in extensive training sessions to develop their tutoring skills.

As a result of the staff changing from one semester to the next, the courses that are offered will vary from semester to semester. The Center always provides help in the basic core classes as well as the lower level classes in various subjects.

If a course that you need help in is not listed, please come to the Center and fill out a tutor request form. There may be a tutor that can help you.
