The mission of Tutorial Services is to support both faculty instruction and student learning by providing academic assistance which reinforces and supplements the university curriculum. Goals to accomplish this include:
Hiring competent peer tutors to help students identify specific problems they are experiencing with their courses, establish procedures for addressing those problems and providing useful, immediate feedback concerning their progress.
Training peer tutors to develop competence in tutoring methodology and interpersonal skills that will demonstrate respect for the whole person, thus building self-respect and self-confidence in the students served leading to their becoming independent learners.
Working collaboratively with faculty to allocate tutors in creative and effective ways to meet both instructional demands of the classroom as well as the tutoring needs of students.
Offering services that can enhance a student's academic experience as well as remediate.
