In addition to the drop-in writing assistance described above, tutors may also be available for course-specific tutoring. Peer tutors are current CR students who have been recommended by faculty for their content-area knowledge. Peer tutors have recently completed the courses they are tutoring and have a peer perspective on how to approach learning in their specific disciplines. Peer tutors have also been trained to facilitate learning, and they also integrate a variety of learning and study strategies into their tutoring sessions. Peer tutors may be available by appointment.
Additional tutoring services are provided by the staff of the Academic Support Center. These are professional tutors with degrees in their respective disciplines who have also had instructional and tutoring experience. They have been trained to facilitate student learning, and they integrate a variety of learning and study strategies (such as notetaking and test-taking) into their tutoring sessions so that students may be successful in their classes.
How often will I meet with my tutor?
Typically, tutors meet their students once or twice a week on a regular schedule. You will work out your schedule together based on the times you both are available.
Is tutoring done individually or in groups?
Tutoring appointments can be either individual or in small groups. Because it can be difficult to find tutors for all subjects, we encourage students to work in groups whenever possible. Many students find that working with one or two others from the same class can be particularly helpful.
Tutoring appointments may be set up in ½ hour or 1 hour increments. The first tutoring appointment of the semester is typically 1 hour long. To find out if a tutor is available in the subject you need, or to schedule a tutoring appointment, please call 707-476-4154 or email ASC-Staff@redwoods.edu
