Tutoring and Academic Support is a unit within the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE). We are conveniently located on the second floor of the G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons, Suite 283. We also manage the Tutoring Reception Desk in Suite 273.
Some of our programs and services include:
1-to-1 Tutoring is an appointment-based tutoring service available to all undergraduate students and covers 200+ different courses but primarily 1000- and 2000-level courses.
PLUS (Peer-Led Undergraduate Study) sessions help students enrolled in traditionally challenging courses learn in a relaxed, collaborative environment.
Drop-In Tutoring is offered in many high-demand subjects for walk-up help from course TAs and tutors.
Learning Assistant Program brings active learning to the classroom.
