The Learning Commons is the home for tutoring on campus.  Located in the Library, the Learning Commons offers professional and peer tutor staff to assist in developing your writing and study skills, as well as space to study and many available computers structured for individual or group work.  Professional tutors are also available for nursing, math and science courses.  Peer tutors are available in all courses (when possible).

Come visit the Library’s Learning Commons. Appointments are recommended but drop-in assistance is available at various times throughout the week as are walk-in sessions.

Tutor Trac Peer Tutoring

Peer tutors are students just like you except that they’ve already taken the class (and done very well) for which you’re seeking help. Peer tutors are available by appointment only.

Peer tutoring is available during Fall and Spring semesters to all Mount Aloysius students. If you would like assistance, first check the list below to see if there is a tutor for your course. If you see a tutor for your class then please fill out the Request-a-Tutor form.

Be sure to indicate times you are NOT available on the form.

  • You will receive a confirmation email when your tutoring appointment has been scheduled
  • Contact Theresa Spanella with any question or concerns

If you excel in a particular course, we might even hire you to tutor other students who may be having difficulties! It’s a win-win situation!  Fill out the Peer Tutor Application and return it to the Learning Commons Coordinator for consideration.

Professional Tutoring

Professional tutors are available a) by appointment, b) on a drop-in basis (a tutor will be on duty in the Learning Commons on a first-come, first-served basis) or c) on a walk-in basis where the student is basically taking a chance that a tutor maybe available.

SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT with any professional tutor by logging in to Tutortrac using your campus credentials for log-in.
