About Campus Tutorial Services

Campus Tutorial Services is a complimentary FREE service designed to facilitate the learning experience for students while at the same time enhance the content knowledge/pedagogy of the tutors.

  • "Complimentary" means the client utilizes our services in addition to working closely with faculty.

  • "Facilitate" means tutors facilitate the client's active learning of content, as opposed to passive direct instruction.

Who We Serve

Our focus is primarily on offering support for level 100 and 200 courses with high rates of failure and/or a significant demand for tutorial assistance, thereby increasing the retention of freshmen and sophomores so they can make it to their "major" classes.  However, we do offer tutoring for upper level & graduate classes, as demand dictates.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplementary Instruction is when a tutor is assigned to a course with a professor, and they hold weekly hour-long tutoring sessions outside of the class time for all students in that section.  More information about SI can be found here.
