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 tutoring has ended for this semester. Please check back during the Fall semester for more details.

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.
