Standing appointments are free tutoring sessions that happen on a recurring basis. These small group sessions include a tutor and up to three students from the same course. Preference is given to students with GPAs below 3.0. Once approved, a student may schedule one appointment per course (2 appointments max) each week until the end of the semester (the schedule you set up will be the same schedule you use through the remainder of the semester). These appointments are up to 50 minutes in length and are granted upon qualification and availability.
The student should understand that these tutoring sessions are meant to clarify information presented in class and to help the student with problem areas. These sessions are not to take the place of regular classroom attendance.
Standing appointments are available for a number of subjects. Note that for Chemistry 1025 students, the A.C.E. (Achieving Excellence in Chemsitry)program provides specialized help for students specifically taking this course. This program is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
In addition to receiving help with specific subjects, the Teaching Center also provides assistance with study skills. Click here for more information about the study skills program.
