ON CAMPUS PEER TUTORING

SMALL GROUP TUTORING

group tutoring

Tutors work with a group of students to address individual areas of concern from various courses. Sessions can be listed as course-specific or general. Examples would be "Tri One Tutoring" sessions which could cover Biochemistry I, Cells & Tissues, Developmental and Applied Anatomy, and other Tri 1 courses, depending upon the students' needs and trimester schedule.

LARGE GROUP TUTORING

Tutors work with groups of students in either a lab or classroom setting to address students’ academic needs and questions. The tutor works with a faculty member from the course(s) to determine areas of focus for tutoring sessions.
